French Toast Strata
This recipe is presented by Eggland’s Best. This is one of those recipes in which you throw everything into a casserole dish, refrigerate, bake, and voila! French Toast Strata, a special occasion breakfast or brunch centerpiece. The hardest part may be remembering to mix the ingredients ahead of time so you can refrigerate the dish between 2 hours and overnight. The easiest part? Savoring the sweet results.
- 8 eggland's best eggs
- 11⁄2 cup lowfat buttermilk
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1⁄2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 french baguette loaf, cut into /2 inch cubes
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 325 °F. Coat a 3-by-9-inch casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Cut the baguette into 2/-inch cubes and spread along the bottom of the dish.
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, buttermilk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well and pour it over the baguette.
Cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and press down lightly, so the baguette absorbs the egg mixture. Refrigerate it at least 2 hours (or overnight) before baking.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until eggs are set.
After removing the dish from the oven, sprinkle it with brown sugar and let it stand for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Uh...the Ingredients list says to cut the baguette into /2 pieces pieces, whatever that means, yet the Directions say /1 pieces. And " Directions, 5. Step" have us baking it 4 minutes? That's not even CLOSE! Please clarify both issues, please.
