French Toast

So, the french toast recipe was delish, and as promised, I will share the recipe. I got this off of (I think!).

Overnight French Toast

one loaf french bread, cut into 1 inch slices
1/4 C butter, softened
4 eggs (I used egg substitute)
1 C milk
1/4 C sugar
2 T maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Grease a baking dish, add slices of bread into a layer. Whisk ingredients and pour over top. Cover & chill overnight. Bake 350 x 30-35 minutes, uncovered.

I had no idea if the butter was to be used to grease the pan, or if it was supposed to be whisked in with the ingredients. So, I softened the butter considerably in the micro, and whisked it all together. Turned out just fine! On a side note, I used a smaller, oval baking dish, and ended up doing 2 layers of the french bread. In the future, I will use a larger baking dish so there is only one layer. My bottom layer came our a little soggy, and the top layer a little crispy. If one big layer was used, the liquid mix would be evenly distributed, and should come out perfectly! Everyone here liked the dish, and it's definitely going into my "repeat" pile.

I misread the title as "overweight French toast", and I was thinking that was a really unfortunate name. However, now that I've correctly read it, it sounds mighty good!
