French toast in casserole form – what could be more perfect, particularly for the weekend of General Conference? These will fit well with the new AlohaLarsen family tradition of caramel/pecan pull apart’s.

Thanks to awesome Aunt Becky for the find.

Ingredients

  1. 8 oz cream cheese
  2. 3/4 cup sugar
  3. 1/4 cup butter
  4. 2 tsp vanilla
  5. 1 tsp cinnamon
  6. 4 eggs
  7. 2 1/2 cup milk
  8. French bread

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°
  • Prepare 9″ by 13″ pan with cooking spray
  • Combine and beat the first five ingredients (cream cheese, sugar, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon)
  • Beat in 1 egg at a time
  • Stir in the milk
  • Cut the french bread into 1″ slices, and soak them in the mix
  • Place the pieces of bread into the pan, and then pour any leftover mix
  • Cook for 40-45 minutes

Pictures to follow as we try tomorrow!

Update

As promised, pictures of our french toast baking adventure!

Mom and Baby getting ready to make breakfast

Watching General Conference in our family room, computer plugged into the TV

Using the recipe from this blog page – the start of something great?

In goes the cream cheese

In goes the vanilla

In goes the sugar, butter, and cinnamon

The picture doesn’t show it, but I want everyone to know that as I grabbed the PAM by the cap, the bottom fell off, and I was able to catch it with my other hand. Yep, I’m that awesome.

Assembling the beater

She’s ready for battle… I should remember this vigor next time I’m thinking about getting in a fight with her.

Dad and Baby beating together

Baby is loving this beater

So far, so good

Mom and Baby had to take a break from baking for diaper changing. Side note for new parents out there – chucks are probably the best purchase we have made so far during Baby’s short life.

If I wore diapers, changing them would probably make me this happy, too

More skill needed for the picture taker than for the egg breaker…

…Good thing my photographer is awesome

She gets excited about the weirdest things

I’m proud of the fact that I’m allowed to do the jobs involving pointy objects

Ready to soak

Ewwwwww

Fitting so far

That’s it, for better or worse

Just a few last steps

A dash more cinnamon, and we’re oven ready

In the oven for 40 minutes. And then, we feast.

T minus 40 minutes

Mom and Baby had to take another break, this time to eat. He was pleased.
