Last week Phoebe made some one hour french bread for dinner.  She made two loaves and we only ate one that night.  So I took the other loaf and made baked french toast for breakfast the next morning.

This is one of our favorite “make ahead” breakfasts.

    This looks really good. Does the bread come out soggy? We love crispy french toast and often bake it instead of pan frying in order to get a good crisp texture. Goodness, now I’m hungry :O)

      The bread is nice an crispy on the outside and softer on the inside. I’ve actually cut the eggs and milk a little at times because my oldest son doesn’t care for it too moist. It’s definitely something you can play with.

    Found you from the Farm to Table book… so glad I found you! Bought your Gardening Notebook and had to say thank you for such a great resource! It was really helpful in planning my garden this year.

    This looks delicious! I always make two loaves of french bread at a time and I will have to do this!
