French Toast is always a great alternative to pancakes. It’s easy to make and easy to change up based on what’s available to work with in terms of bread and seasonal fruits. This recipe is baked which gives you some precious hands-off time. I know I appreciate that on busy weekend mornings when I need a few minutes to straighten up the kitchen before the family comes down and enjoy a cup of coffee in peace.
This is a bit decadent, baking in its own caramel walnut sauce but that makes it perfect for a holiday breakfast or brunch with extended family and friends. I love that this recipe is made with simple ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your pantry or fridge. Holidays are hectic enough without having to remember and search for special ingredients in the grocery store. With this recipe, you can pretty much grab a loaf of French bread and go.
Why not give this one a try this weekend?
