French Toast Casserole
1 loaf whole wheat bread ($1)
8 eggs ($1.50)
3 cups milk ($.75)
Mix together some sugar and cinnamon for topping. Tear bread into cubes and place half in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Mix the eggs and milk together and pour half of mixture over the bread and sprinkle with topping mix. Place the rest of the bread cubes in pan and repeat egg mixture and topping mix. Cover and refridgerate overnight (or over the day). Remove from fridge 30 minutes before baking. Cover with foil and bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes. Serve with butter and syrup.
This is a great way for your whole family to be able to eat french toast at the same time! It reheats great as well. I usually cut it into servings and put each one in a freezer bag once it has cooled and then my DD can have french toast any morning she wants. Just thaw in microwave and it's better than the eggo waffles...and cheaper
