This was my prep Saturday Night for Marmalade French Toast Casserole that I served for breakfast on Sunday!
Ingredients: ( to serve 8 +)
3 Tb butter
Two loaves French Bread or Ciabatta ( I used one of each)
1 jar Marmalade (I used Trader Joes Organic Orange and Apricot Marmalade)
2 and 3/4 cup Milk ( I used 1%)
6 eggs, plus 2 egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
*Optional 1/2 cup Raisins and/or Walnuts
Grease casserole dish and butter one side of bottom layer of bread slices. Lay bread butter side down, Spread Marmalade over top layer. Repeat with top layer of bread slices only lay marmalade side down, butter side facing up. Beat together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices.
* at this point I added NOO raisins but I should covered the dish in the oven or I should have kept the raisins underneath the bread because a few burned after cooking. *
Let sit in fridge overnight or 8 hours+. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
I think everyone liked it… one dish was already gone before I even got to take a photo!!
