If you like French Toast…then you will love this recipe for Baked French Toast.

This recipe was easy and very affordable. When I am at the grocery store I usually make it a point to pass by the discounted bakery section to see what goodies I can find there. I love to find bread deeply discounted because I can use it to make breadcrumbs, dressing, bread pudding, or French toast. It doesn’t even matter if the bread is a little stale for bread pudding or French toast because the liquid mixture will soak into the bread and make it super moist. I was lucky enough to find a $.99 loaf of French bread today and decided to make what else but…French Toast. To change it up a bit I chose to bake it instead and it was a total success…be sure to give it a try 🙂
