Whats for Breakfast ? Baked French Toast

One of my kids favorite meals is when we have dinner for breakfast. 

I love breakfast foods, but I am not a big breakfast eater, so breakfast for dinner is perfect for me! The only problem is that when you make eggs, bacon, hash browns and biscuits, you wind up with a bunch of dirty dishes. So I really wanted to try something a little less messy.

One thing that we all love is French toast, and a few years ago I found some recipes for Baked French Toast. I am really bad about finding recipes and then losing them, so I made up one of my own. It is always a hit at our house! The only complaint I get is that I didn’t make enough.

This is a great meal to have your kids help with. 

My daughter helped me make it last night and really enjoyed it. This is also a one pan dinner, which makes it even more of a breeze.

Kate loves to help me cook!

Here is my recipe:
