Chocolate Chip Baked French Toast–Mother’s Day Breakfast!! 12


OK.  I really didn’t know whether to call this baked French toast or bread pudding.  I finally settled on Baked French Toast because then it is more acceptable to eat for breakfast!  This is like having dessert for breakfast, and if I want to eat dessert for breakfast on Mother’s Day no one is going to stop me!

This is truly delish!!  I loved it so much with my homemade syrup, but you could serve with regular syrup or be fancy and get some caramel sauce!! Oh, my mouth is watering talking about it!

A couple tips:  Use day old bread.  This helps soak up the egg mixture.  Second, make sure you really do soak it overnight.  That will help it not be soggy and give it the “bread pudding” texture.

You do need a little prep time to make this happen. 

I am trying a new recipe app.  Let me know how you like it!!  Hopefully it will allow you to save and print the recipe more conveniently.
