Wednesdays Unplugged – Oven Baked French Toast

This is Wednesday, my day to be unplugged. This week I am really unplugged…in NYC for a conference and some 'play' time…not where most people think of going for a winter getaway, but one of my favorites places!


"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." ~ Bill Cosby


I made this French toast for breakfast last Wednesday, on New Year's Eve morning, and was asked for the recipe…here it is!


recipe from Byerly's

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 slices circle cinnamon bread
  • Maple syrup (optional)
  • Strawberries (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Melt butter in a 10" x 15" jelly-roll pan. Combine eggs, half-and-half, honey, nutmeg and vanilla in bowl, beat until smooth and pour into a 9 x 13 pan. Arrange bread over egg mixture and turn slices to coat evenly. Let bread soak until egg mixture is completely absorbed. Transfer bread slices to buttered jelly-roll pan. Bake until golden brown on each side (4-5 minutes per side). Serve with maple syrup and/or strawberries.
