It’s become a tradition for us to have Overnight Peach French Toast on Thanksgiving and Christmas mornings. It’s made the night before so all I have to do is stick it in the oven and bake it. No preparation, no mess to clean up. We always have it with homemade breakfast sausage and maple syrup!
That brown sugar gooey syrup in the bottom is so good. I could eat that without the peaches and bread but I guess that wouldn’t be too good for the diet if I ate a whole bowl of brown sugar/butter mixture. After that cooled a minute, I kinda squished the sliced peaches on top.
French bread or any dense type bread can be used. I used ciabatta bread that was leftover from what I used for the cornbread dressing. Put several layers of thinly sliced bread or you can slice the bread thicker and put just one layer. Mash the bread down so it’s down in the syrup/peach mixture.
Beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla and pour over the bread.
Cover and refrigerate overnight. Then . . follow the rest of the directions and you’ll get this:
