We celebrate Meatless Mondays in our house and Brinner is often served as it is so easy to stay meat free with breakfast foods. This particular French Toast Bake is a family favorite. I used apples in this recipe but I also like using other fruits as I did in this Blueberry version with a streusel topping.
Some other favorites are when I have leftover Raisin Bread as in this French Toast Casserole or leftover Stollen Bread during the holidays.
As I write this post I am looking out the window watching the snowfall. The forecast is calling for over a foot of snow before it stops....Perfect for browsing all the recipes being shared today and finding some great breakfasts to keep us warm and provide the energy needed for shoveling.
