French Toast Custard
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling Bake: 55 min. + cooling
We have been enjoying this dish for years. My daughter comes back from college and ask for french toast but it has to be this one!
French Toast Custard has been a Christmas morning tradition for more than six years at our house. I would be disowned if it wasn't part of Christmas.This is a very simple recipe and turns out beautifully if you follow three very important steps.1. Bread should be a day or two old.2. Butter must be melted and3. Prepare at least the night before. This gives the custard enough time to soak into the bread.I serve the French Toast with a thick cut bacon. There is never any left over. So, now I make two.Thank you for such a great time-honored recipe.
Horrible recipe.Used two day old stale French bread as the recipe calls for. However, by buttering BOTH sides of the bread you prevent the bread from absorbing the majority of the custard. So you end up with overly dried cooked bread on top of a barely cooked layer of what looks like scrambled eggs.Will NOT repeat this recipe. Ruined our at home Sunday brunch sense this was supposed to be the main course.
My first attempt was not successful. However, I will definitely make this again.
This is a quick-and-simple dish to prepare. I think this French toast custard could be improved with the addition of some fresh fruit.

imade this when the recipe first appeared.It was fantastic. good for a crowd.I'm glad I found the recipe again.
This has been a family favorite for many years. It's sweet, so it goes great with a breakfast buffet with other savory dishes.
For the past 5 years, I have made this recipe as a pre-Christmas brunch for friends and neighbors. Everyone loves it! I serve it with a big ham steak and/or sausage.
