NotesOne year, I was just so tired of making individual pieces of french toast, I thought, hey, I can bake them all at once! Sounded relaxing, actually. This is a great way to have a delish breakfast and hardly lift a finger. You can even prepare it the night before and whip it out of the 'fridge in the morning and plop it in the oven. Makes the morning lovely.
