Rainey Family Overnight French Toast

Rainey family

What’s for Christmas breakfast? In case you still need an idea for a special yummy treat, try our family’s Overnight French Toast. We made this every year for holiday brunch when our kids were young. Hope you enjoy it too! Prepare it the night before, stick it in the fridge, and it’s ready to pop in the oven on Christmas morning.

½ cup margarine

1½ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

8-12 slices of bread

8-9 eggs

pinch of salt

1¾ to 2 cups milk

Melt margarine in a 9×13 pan. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and stir. Layer bread on top of the mixture. Beat eggs and salt together, then add milk. Pour the milk and egg mixture over bread. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight. The next morning, uncover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Cut into squares and place upside down on plate so melted sugar/cinnamon is on top. Don’t forget the cup of hot chocolate or coffee!

      Barbara, I don’t know if you ever get to Read these posts but just wanted to tell you that I love, love your Christmas & Easter items -I have them all over our home & have given lots as gifts! I have a suggestion-this year I bought your O Come Let us Adore Him ribbon-it is Beautifull -I have it on my mantle-but because of the beige color it doesn’t really show up -would u consider doing it in red next year with gold lettering or do both-I know a lot of people like beige-just thought I would throw it out.
      Thank you again for giving us so many Beautifull gifts & for the fabulous ministry of Family Life!!!
