My secret family recipe…well, maybe it’s not a secret–per se–but there is a secret ingredient that makes this french toast scrumptious! And by family, I mean, my sister in law (who married my brother) introduced this recipe to me.  Each time I’ve made it in the past year or so, I’ll call her to get the recipe again because I had always just scribbled it down on a piece of paper and then lost it. THIS time, I had her email it to me and I’m sharing it with you! I love the baked method because at the end, the oven is set to broil and it sortof carmelizes the yumminess on the bread and makes it slightly crispy on top but still eggy and yummy in the middle.  It’s also really great for a big group…doubles easily!

You start with a loaf of french bread. Recommended day old so it is a bit firmer, but not necessary. 

Here’s the secret ingredient.  Well, I don’t know, maybe others have done this before, but it was new to me. I don’t drink coffee, so I don’t normally have this Coffeemate creamer in the house, but there are several different flavors I’ve tried with this recipe. I like the french vanilla.

Max the egg mixture and pile up the soppy breads…

Metl some butter on a cookie sheet…

Line ’em up on a tray and pop them in the oven.

Even though I generously spray and butter my pan, the bread still sticks some…I bake it about 7 minutes on each side, then turn the oven to broil on each side for a minute or two.

Mmmm, it’s so good….eggy in the middle and crunchy on the outside.  Toasted oh so nicely;)
