Crafting Culinary Magic: Directions

Preparing the Buttery Base

  2. Pour this luscious butter and sugar concoction into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan, ensuring an even spread to create a decadent foundation for your French Toast Bake.

Building Layers of Flavor

  3. Spoon half of the egg mixture onto the bed of Texas Toast, allowing the flavors to infuse and elevate each slice.
  4. Introduce a second layer of Texas Toast, building the foundation for a symphony of textures and tastes.
  5. Artfully spoon the remaining egg mixture onto this layered creation, ensuring that every inch is infused with the delightful combination of eggs, milk, and vanilla.

The Art of Patience

Culmination of Flavors: Baking Time

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake your French Toast creation for 45 minutes, keeping it covered for the first 30 minutes to lock in moisture and flavor.
