I'm a toaster lover and I really love to create and eat something delicious through toasters. Toasting bread is easy and just by simply toasting it's already yummy theirs so much more than just simply toasted bread. I've tasted the best toast recipe ever, it's a French toast casserole with maple syrup. Maybe you've already heard about this from others but if not I just wanted to share to you my French toast casserole with maple syrup experience.
I had the first taste of it at my friends place, her name was Annie. She invited me home for snack and introduced me to her mom. When we arrive her mom was already preparing something since her daughter, Annie had phoned her ahead that she'll be bringing a friend over. Annie and I were talking while watching tv when her mom served the snack. I took a slice and ate it, and it really the taste good. I just continued eating and didn't even notice that Annie and her mom were staring at me. I didn't know what to say but all I said was "It was really delicious. Can I come by next time?"
They were both laughing and said "Sure!".
I was so happy to hear it but I just can't come by and just ate her mom's French toast casserole with maple syrup all the time so I did a little research and tried to make something like it, but no matter how many times I try and how many different way's I did, I just couldn't get that taste. I finally give up and just started to hang out at Annie's place weather her mom's making that French toast casserole with maple syrup or not, but I'm sure hopping that she is.
It's been years since then, thanks to that French toast casserole with maple syrup of Annie's mom I now have the coolest and the best best friend ever plus a second mom who cooks really delicious food.
Here's the recipe of the French toast casserole with maple syrup that I've researched over the internet incase you wanted to try to make it on your own.
- 1 loaf French bread
- 8 large eggs
- 2 cups half-and-half
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 tablespoons crush sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
- Dash salt
- Praline topping, recipe follows
- Maple syrup
Directions: First thing to do is to slice the French bread into 20 slices, about 1-inch each. Then arrange the slices in a generously buttered about 9 to 13-inch flat baking dish in 2 rows, extending beyond the slices. Afterwards, in a large bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and then beat with a rotary beater or whisk until all of it blends but be sure to not make it too bubbly. Transfer the mixture over the slices of bread, making sure all are covered evenly with the mixture of egg and milk. Put some of the mixture n between the slices then cover with foil and keep cold overnight.
In the next day, preheat it to the oven at 350 degrees F. While doing so, create the praline topping, the ingredients are of the following:
- 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 2 tablespoons of light corn syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
Then finally, like the egg and mild mixture, combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and blend well and there you have it, the baked French toast casserole with maple syrup.
