French Toast Casserole

Today is our homeschool review so we’ve been busy making sure our things are in order as we wind down the school year. This has been quite a school year, and I’ve pretty much determined that we’ll be continuing through the summer. There will be plenty of reading and a fair amount of writing as we work towards fine tuning some of their skills. Already I can see improvement in their vocabulary and spelling from the reading.

We’ll also spend time working in the area of home economics. This is generally something we do as a routine with our daily chores and meal preparations; however, it is another area that I would like the children to master – the art of preparing balanced meals, organization, and cleaning. This will be an ongoing process yet a rewarding one! All of these lesson plans will be made over the next week or so in effort to be ready for our summer school.

In preparation for such a short, yet busy day today, I took some time last night to prepare French Toast Casserole for the kids’ breakfast this morning. Usually my 15-year old daughter prepares breakfast; however, today I’ve given her a very welcomed break (smile). Since I made several large loaves of bread yesterday morning, I left out a loaf just for drying to make the French Toast. It’s a great way to use up that bread and it’s delicious with a glass of milk.

French Toast Casserole

The night before…
Cut your bread into thick slices (if using homemade)
Allow to dry out a bit, a couple of hours sitting out should do it.
Line home Homemade bread slices the bottom of your crock pot or glass dish.
Mix together the following :

4 large eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c butter (melted)
1 c sugar
1tsp vanilla

Pour the mixture over the bread and let soak in the fridge overnight.

The next morning…

Mix together the following:

1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup butter (soft)
3 TBS water
1/4 cup raw sugar

This mixture should be thick. Pour over the soaked bread and bake on 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes. For crock pots, place on high and you’ll have a well baked casserole in 1.5 to 2 hours.

Blessings to you.
