This does require an overnight soak in the fridge. I usually only make this once a year for Christmas Morning breakfast. It's a special treat that my kids look forward to. Very rich, extremely decadent! Sometimes makes an appearance Easter morning as well. Enjoy!!

How to Make Christmas Morning French Toast

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice Egg Knot rolls into 1 inch slices, you should be able to get three slices from each roll. If using French Bread loaf, slice into 20 1 inch slices. Arrange slices in a generously buttered 9x13 inch baking dish overlapping the slices a bit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Beat with an electric mixer or wisk until well blended, but not too bubbly.
  3. Pour egg mixture over the bread slices, making sure they are all covered evenly. Spoon some of the mixture in between each bread slice. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
  4. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all praline ingredients until well blended. Spread praline topping evenly over the bread slices getting some in between slices.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes in preheated oven until puffy and light golden brown. Serve with your favorite maple syrup. Enjoy!!
