Baked Mixed Fruit French Toast Recipe


I love to mix and match fruits for this great baked french toast. We used leftover rolls this year the sweet ones. They made the perfect baked french toast and the fruits with added cinnamon smelled awesome baking. This is one I make every Christmas for the family along with a baked stratta.


Baked French Toast

2 cups half-and-half or whole milk
4 eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 apple paired and sliced
1 banana sliced
1 cup blueberries
6  slices of leftover Panettone bread, Hawaiian  sweet rolls or 8 slices of bread

Optional prepared fruits :  apples, blueberries, banana, peaches, raspberries,  use fresh sliced

Beat eggs, milk, sugar, spices, vanilla, together in a separate bowl set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a 3 or 4 quart pan regular baking dish or a throw away aluminum pan with nonstick cooking spray, add two tablespoons of butter and melt in the oven .

Layer bread like a lasagna, put a layer of bread on the bottom, fruit, end with bread and pour egg mixture over the top, allow to sit for 10 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until middle is set. Serve with cooked bacon, breakfast sausage or ham slices on the side.
