Baked French Toast

Morning breakfasts at my husband's school are my favorite.  I don't actually get to attend and eat with everyone, but I do get to have fun making some of our favorite dishes to send with him.

We live really close to his building, and that means we can volunteer for hot dishes.  This prospect is much more exciting than some of the cold options.  My breakfast casserole borrowed from Emeril is a favorite.  Yesterday morning, we tried our baked french toast, too.

I found this recipe on a blog, gave it a try and have not been disappointed.

Baked French Toast

1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1 cup brown sugar
1 loaf Texas toast
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
Melt butter in microwave & add brown sugar, stir until mixed
Pour butter/sugar mix into bottom of 9 x 13 pan, spread the mix to cover the bottom of the pan
Beat together eggs, milk, & vanilla
Place the Texas Toast in the bottom of the pan in a single layer
Pour half of the egg mixture on the first layer of bread
Add the second layer of Texas Toast
Pour the remaining egg mixture over the second layer of bread
Cover and place in the refridgerator overnight
In the morning, preheat the over to 350 degrees
