Overnight French Toast

I am not a morning person.  At all.  I like to send my daughter off with a nice hearty breakfast, but have ZERO desire to cook in the morning.  I want to sit with my coffee, not stand over the stove.  Enter overnight French toast.  Mix it up, put it in the fridge overnight, then just pull out & bake in the morning.  That's my kind of cooking!  We usually have grapes, bananas, or apples on the side with this.

Overnight French Toast
Serves 2

4 slices cinnamon bread
4 eggs
1/4 c milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Spray an 8x8 glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.  Lay bread slices in a single layer in prepared dish.  In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and cinnamon.  Pour over bread.  Cover dish, and refrigerate over night.

In the morning, pull the dish out of the fridge, and sit it on the counter.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake French Toast for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

*Sometimes I sprinkle some berries, chopped bananas, finely chopped apples, or nuts over the bread, before pouring the egg on top.

*This recipe can easily be doubled, but when I do so I use a 9x13 dish instead.
