Overnight Peach French Toast

23 May

This past weekend, my mother and I (Taste Testers  Duo) attended  Bloggy Boot Camp in Philly hosted by The SITS Girls. One of our sponsor’s giveaway was King Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls. I grew up in CA, and my grandmother often served these rolls at our Sunday dinners.  I thought “these would be perfect in the Peaches and Cream French Toast recipe I recently tried”.  Wanting to put my own spin on the original Peaches and Cream French Toast, I made a few substitutions and voila we have “Overnight Peach French Toast”

It tastes AMAZING and it is hard to stop at just one serving. I would suggest you make it for a family gathering or a potluck otherwise you may be tempted to eat it all. I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as my mother and I did.

A fabulous dish made from King Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls.

Overnight Peach French Toast

Ingredients

  •  King Hawaiian  Original Sweet Rolls (12 pack)*
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups 2% milk*
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 -15oz can of peaches in syrup, drained
  • 1/2 cup  packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg*
  • 2 tablespoon butter cubed*

Coat a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Remove rolls from package and cut in half horizontally. Place the cut halves into the baking pan. Make sure the bread is packed tightly in the baking pan.

Mix together the eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar and pour it over the sweet rolls. Make sure all of the rolls are covered with the egg mixture.

Drain the peaches and arrange them on top of the bread and egg mixture. Distribute the peaches evenly.

Mix together in a separate bowl the brown sugar and nutmeg. Once throughly mixed, you will take the mixture and crumble it over the peaches and bread. Make sure the entire dish is covered with the brown sugar mixture.

Place the cubed butter generously over the dish.  Cover the dish and refrigerate overnight. Allow at least 8 hours for the bread to absorb the egg mixture. Next morning take the dish out of the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature (approximately 30 minutes) prior to baking. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.

Bake the french toast for 45 to 50 minutes. The french toast is done if your toothpick comes out clean when you stick it in the middle.

Once you take it out of the oven, you should it allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes. The bread and egg mixture will tend to rise so please allow it time to settle prior to cutting.

Please note the asterisk ingredients are my modifications from www.myrecipe.com “Overnight Peaches and Cream French Toast”.
