{Christmas} Baked French Toast

Breakfast on Christmas morning is a big deal in our house and we'll be including this as part of our buffet this year. 

This version of Baked French Toast is a bit healthier than many other versions we've found. We've prepared this recipe with both real eggs and egg substitute and results were great either way. 

Merry Christmas to you!
