ABC'S HOME ECONOMICS: Denise’s “Breakfast for Dinner” French Toast Sliders
"Denise is a superhumanly patient public-school teacher who often has to play peacemaker with the bickering Hayworths. Able to make friends with anyone, Denise is constantly rebuilding bridges burned by her wife Sarah. Although it’s not easy being “the best person in the family,” Denise loves it when everyone admits she’s the best person in the family."Serves 12 sliders | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes
Why I Love This Recipe
Having fun is a must if you’re going to spend time in the kitchen. To shake up the weekly menu we like to flip things around (literally and figuratively) with french toast for dinner. These sliders deliver something sweet, something salty and something irresistible!
Ingredients You'll Need
12 slices of bacon
1 tablespoon oil
2 cups frozen shredded hash browns
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 large eggs, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
12 sweet rolls, split in half
6 slices cheddar cheese, quartered
1/4 cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add elbow macaroni to boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, approx. 8 minutes. Drain; pour macaroni into the baking dish.
Beat eggs, sour cream, seasoned salt, and black pepper into a smooth mixture; stir Cheddar cheese and Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese into mixture until thoroughly combined. Pour over macaroni and mix well. Top casserole with torn pieces of processed cheese. Drizzle melted butter over casserole, especially along the sides.
Bake for about 30 minutes - until casserole is bubbling and cheese has melted.
