Oh the marvelous morning breakfast of Strawberry French Toast..how I wished it could be served to ME in bed...
since I'm not that lucky, I get to make this yummy stuff myself!....which is fine too! French Toast is a favorite of mine
so we eat it frequently at our house...I love the taste, the smell, the texture and all the delicious variations that can be created with this fabulous breakfast dish....THIS particular treat, is prepared the night before so you can just pop it in the oven in the morning. Its easy, its delicious and it makes you wish you would have made an extra pan for tomorrow's breakfast too.............!
EASY Strawberry French Toast
1/2 c butter
1 c. brown sugar
2 T corn syrup
1 loaf of dense bread, sliced (Texas Toast Bread...I used a loaf of homemade bread)
1 1/2 c. heavy cream
1/4 t. salt
1 t vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon
1-2 can strawberry pie filling
In a small saucepan melt butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup over medium heat until smooth, stir constantly so it won't stick. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Spread until bottom of pan is covered. Place 6 slices of bread in a single layer to cover bottom of pan. Mix together eggs, cream, salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour 1/2 the mixture into pan, covering each bread slice. Place 6 MORE slices of bread into pan (if you are NOT using Texas Toast Bread...since its already thick...if your using this bread, pour ALL of the mixture over bread as you won't need to layer another piece of bread) over the top of other bread slices, pour remaining mixture over bread, making sure to cover each piece. Cover and refrigerate over night. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve warm, topped with strawberry pie filling and whipped topping...its OH SOOOOOO GOOD!!
