This recipe for skier’s overnight French toast was originally submitted to cookingnook.com by Mavis McDonald, a follower from Duluth, MN USA. She worked at a ski resort, so I guess she would know a good skier’s French toast.
Mavis says “This is a recipe anyone that loves French toast will love!”
Serve this wonderful French toast casserole with syrup, fresh fruit and for some added decadence, freshly whipped cream.
If you really, really want to, you can make it healthier by making it with whole wheat bread.
Sounds like the perfect breakfast for skiers or anyone who wants an easy start to the day. Make it in the evening and bake it in the morning.
I love these kinds of breakfast casseroles. They are perfect when you have overnight guests or early morning breakfast guests.
I have made this casserole a few times when I’ve had people over for brunch. I make a fresh fruit salad to go with it and it’s perfect.
