French Toast Bake

In case you haven’t noticed, I love breakfast foods. I could easily eat pancakes, waffles and french toast for the rest of my life… with lots of butter of course.

One thing I despise about making french toast is the amount of time it takes to prepare. Soaking each slice in the egg-milk mixture for 2-3 minutes on each side, then pan-searing it is time consuming. In reality, I’m just hungry most of the time and more inpatient because of said hunger…

Today I’m sharing my new favorite, meal-prep friendly, breakfast recipe: Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Bake. It requires 5 ingredients and takes 40 minutes in the oven but can be reheated all week long for the perfect breakfast on the go.

Serve with peanut butter, syrup or of course my favorite, butter. YUMMY!
