So ever since I made my Blueberry Backed French Toast a couple weeks ago I have been dying to make some more. The kids scarfed down the whole thing & the hubs never even had the chance to try it. So I promised I would make some more – I mean, it’s an easy breakfast recipe so why not? Only I decided to make it a little different. I canned the blueberry idea & swapped it out for caramel & marshmallows. Yep! I created this Caramel Marshmallow Baked French Toast that was out of this world. It was every bit as good as it sounds & all of us had a chance to enjoy it this time.
I think I love baked french toast so much because I can whip it up – cover it & pop it in the fridge at any point in the day. Then the next day I can either pop it in the oven when the hubs heads out for work or the kids can do it when they get up. They have a fresh baked breakfast – with very little mess. Really the ease & cleanliness of baked french toast is a HUGE plus for me.
I’m such a fan of regular french toast – but the mess & time to make it is so discouraging. Now that I have made it – I’m on a roll. Seems I’m always thinking of new & creative ways to make it even better.
The best part is that I swapped out the milk I would normally use in my baked french toast recipes & I used Caramel Marshmallow creamer instead. What a fabulous way to add a punch of flavor – delish.
