French Toast Casserole -
This may be the best thing you'll ever taste for brunch. It's like having dessert for breakfast, but worth it. And, it's really easy to make.
You'll need -
1 Challah Loaf
2.5 cups of Milk
1.5 Teaspoon of Vanilla
Lay bacon strips on a cooling rack. Lightly brush bacon with maple syrup. Put the rack on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil. Put the bacon in the oven at the same time as the french toast but keep an eye on it. After about 25 - 30 minutes take the bacon out. It'll be nice and crispy.
Fruit Salad -
Buy whatever fruit you want to put in it. I usually use raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. Rinse fruit, put it in a bowl, sprinkle sugar over it, mix and serve on top of french toast.
In memory of Helen Kirzner, who shared the french toast recipe with my mom about 10 years ago and we have been making it ever since.
