In keeping with the breakfast theme, my next favorite thing is french toast. Here’s an easy take on it. You basically set it and forget it for about 40 minutes. Perfect for company.
1 loaf Brioche or challa, cut up in cubes
2 cups of milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Note: you can add dried fruit, fresh fruit o nuts to mixture
Butter 11x7x2-inch glass baking dish. Place bread in dish. Whisk eggs and the other ingredients in medium bowl to blend; pour over bread. Using spatula, lightly press down on bread to moisten completely. Cover with foil and chill overnight.
Place foil-covered dish in cold oven. Set oven at 350°F and bake 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until pudding is puffed and golden brown, about 35 minutes longer. Spoon pudding onto plates, sprinkle with toasted nuts, and serve with warm maple syrup.
