Baked French Toast
My husband had friends staying to help us with a room-construction project. They raved about it. This does also reheat well (if you have any left!) Just place uncovered in a pan with a small amount of water and bake at 350 until warmed through.
I bake all our bread, and used leftover french bread made with 1-1/2 tbs. Sesame Oil (but no seeds) and 1/2 tbs. olive oil. The sesame flavor added a wonderful layer of subtle flavor to this dish.
