This has become a tradition for Christmas morning breakfast. I have made it a few times throughout the year also. Everyone who tries it asks for the recipe! I love that I can make it the day before and then just pop it in the oven in the morning!
Peaches & Cream French Toast
(Original recipe from http://www.aliceandthemockturtle.com)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp reserved juice from canned peaches
1 29 oz canned peaches drained
1 french baguette cubed
8 oz cream cheese cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups half & half
1 tsp vanilla
Heat butter, brown sugar, & peach juice in a saucepan until bubbly.
Pour caramel mixture into a greased 13×9 pan.
Scatter peach slices over caramel sauce.
Next place your cubed bread over your peach slices.
Top with pieces of cream cheese.
Place eggs, half & half, & vanilla in blender. Blend until combined.
Pour egg mixture over bread & cream cheese.
Cover & refrigerate for at least an hour. I have done up to 17 hours with no issues. Bake uncovered in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
