Hey there! Sorry for being all over the place this week. Totally not my fault though I’m having a massive case of puppy love. Tyson and Chester have been watching each other this whole week. It’s only a matter of time before one of them makes a move.
So things at our house have been pretty busy this week adjusting to the little guy being around. He is around so many people all day here at the gym that he should be a very social dog. He goes to the vet in a week or so and we’re hoping they can shed some light on how big he may get. We don’t really care but it would be nice to have some idea. After looking at his paws we discovered they are webbed which he must get from the tiny bit of lab in him. Hopefully he likes the water!
Anyways as promised here is the baked french toast recipe I made for my guests last weekend. It is super easy to assemble the night before and then you just pop it in the oven in the morning. This is a pretty basic recipe so you could add whatever you like to make it your own (fruit, nuts, etc). It’s also very easy to double or halve if need be.
- 8-12 slices of bread (you need enough to make two layers in the bottom of your dish. I used a 3 qt rectangular dish)
- 1 cup milk of choice (we used 1%)
- 4 large eggs
- 1.5 tsp vanilla (I just eyeball)
- 1/4 cup splenda or sweetener of choice
- 2 tbsp of maple syrup (we used sugar free maple syrup and I bet the caramel variety would be amazing as well)
- Cinnamon and other spices to taste
- Butter/margarine to spread over slices of bread
- Generously coat the bottom of your pan with butter or cooking spray – I used bakers Pam
- Butter each slice of bread and then cut it into small triangles and layer it in the bottom of your pan, buttered side up
- Continue until you have about 2 layers of bread
- Whisk everything else together in a mixing bowl
- Dump egg/milk mixture over bread and press bread into mixture ensuring everything is coated
- Allow bread to soak 8 hours or overnight
- Preheat oven to 350° and bake for 40-45 minutes or until browned on top and the middle is cooked through
