Baked Holiday French Toast

August 6th, 2016

Growing up, we always got to open Christmas presents first thing Christmas morning and would snack on the oranges in our stocking to tide us over until breakfast. If this is tradition in your family, then this is a great recipe that not only can be prepared the night before and stored in the fridge until morning, but can be put into the oven to cook so that it is ready when you and your family are.

This recipe is for two people and can be multiplied for the desired quantity.

In a bowl combine:

3 pieces of whole wheat bread torn into pieces

1/2 cup chopped apple

1/2 cup fresh cranberries

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/6 tsp cloves

3 eggs

1/2 cup egg whites

1/4 cup milk (or egg nog for some festive flavour)

Transfer into a casserole dish and either cover and refrigerate until the morning or bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes. The egg should be cooked through and the top of the casserole golden brown when it is ready. Serve topped with syrup, yogurt or apple sauce.
