Sunday Brunch: Boozy French Toast

Boozy French Toast

20121109-001217.jpg

1 load supermarket Challah bread in 1-inch slices
3 cups whole milk
3 eggs
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
6 tbsp flavoring (eg. Bailey’s, Cointreau, Frangelico, Chambord, Creme de Cassis)
or 1-2 tsp of vanilla or almond extract

Prep Day: Generously grease a 9×13 baking dish with salted butter. Arrange bread in two tightly-packed layers in the pan. Cut bread into smaller pieces to fit in the gaps if needed. For thinner, sliced bread, use a third layer (going beyond three layers, however, makes baking difficult). If using fillings of nuts or dried fruits, put them between the layers during assembly. Whisk the milk, eggs, sugar, salt and flavorings of choice and pour over the bread. Sprinkle the top with raw sugar and cinnamon. Wrap tightly with plastic and refrigerate overnight. The bread will absorb all of the milk custard while you are sleeping. Freeze.

Serve Day: Bake at 425F for 30 minutes or until all puffed and golden. This may take longer if you have additional layers. Cut into generous squares and serve with maple syrup, fresh fruit, powdered sugar, etc. Yum!

I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
