Thanks to my friend Kara for the fabulous recipe, even when I messed it up it was still good! I used too much bread. Wasn't doing my math right but it still turned out good and I will make it again.
Baked French Toast Casserole
3/4 stick butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
12 slices bread (crusts cut off) (I used a bread machine recipe for this Maple Wheat Bread)
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
cinnamon/sugar for topping
Mix melted butter, brown sugar, and vanilla together and spread in 9x13 baking dish. Top with 6 pieces of crustless bread.
Mix eggs, milk and cinnamon together and pour 1/2 over bread. Layer remaining 6 pieces of bread on top and cover with remaining egg mixture.
Sprinkle top with cinnamon and sugar and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Since I'm counting calories I'll let you know that this was appoximately 322 calories per serving with 8 servings.
**Since ours was a little dry (due to my mistake) we used a little maple syrup for this.
