You know what would be the best way to start your weekend? Making our Healthy-Overnight French Toast Bake.
It’s quick, it’s easy, and of course it’s delicious. Please note, this is an over night French Toast, so the longer it sits, the more moisture the bread will absorb and make it extra delicious come morning time.
Healthy French Toast Bake
- 8 Slices of Cinnamon Swirl Bread**
- 3 Large Eggs
- 1/2 Cup Half and Half *
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- Pinch of Nutmeg
- Pinch of Salt
- 3 Tablespoons Turbinando Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Raisins
- Cooking Spray
**Can also use Cinnamon Raisin Bread and omit the raisins from the recipe.
*You can use Fat Free Half and Half, but we prefer just regular old half and half.
Spray an 8×11 glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs together. Then add the half and half, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Whisk until combined.
Place the bread down on the greased baking dish. if necessary break up the pieces so the bottom is completely covered.
Sprinkle the raisins evenly over the bread and lightly push them into the bread.
Next, pour the egg mixture over the bread and make sure all the bread is covered. Again, lightly push the bread down so the bread soaks up the egg mixture. Cover and place in the fridge OVERNIGHT.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Remove the french toast from the fridge and uncover. When the oven is hot, place in the oven and cook for 35 minutes.
Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before digging in.
