CEiMB - Almond French Toast Bake



Craving Ellie in My Belly is packed full of all things fresh and wonderful. This week Heide of Chez Zero hosted and my husband and I enjoyed every bite of the Blueberry Almond French Toast bake.



I actually baked the breakfast treat for dinner with Breakfast sausage links.





I used 1 1/2 multi-grain whole wheat baguettes. 1 was not enough to cover the bottom of my 9 x 13 dish.


I made several other changes according to several people commenting on the recipe at the Food Network Site (you can find the recipe by clicking on Food Network.)
To keep this from being too moist, I used 6 large eggs and 6 egg whites, cut the milk down to 1 1/2 cups and added 1/2 cup of maple syrup. I also omitted ALL the dark brown sugar; by accident. I was hurrying and totally spaced!


Thank you Heide for another great Ellie recipe choice! I just know Heide will have the recipe posted on her site as well. Go check it out! =)

all your foods look yummy as usual!

It looks terrific. We really liked this one as well. I liked baking it rather than frying the FT since it cuts down on the mess and still tastes just as good.
No brown sugar for me either. I used maple syrup on top for baking instead.

I'm glad it worked out for you with less liquid. I didn't think to do that, and mine turned out way too soggy! I do want to try it again with adjustments because I know this one has potential! Yours is beautiful.

Hmmm - this looks so comforting and delicious. But I never expect anything less of you :)

I would love that for dinner

Peggy said...

I want those breakfast links to go with mine! We actually ate this like bread pudding. It is so good. Yours looks really tasty.

Vicki said...

This looks so good! Love French toast anytime of day or night.

Heide said...

Yours looks great, thanks for baking along with me this week! :)

Beautiful pictures; I LOVE your baking dish! The texture of yours looks perfect, and I might actually try making it with your substitutions. About a year ago I chose the peach french toast bake for my pick and ended up not liking it because it was too soggy. I was afraid this would end up the same way so I didn't make it, but yours looks great. Nice job!

So pretty, isn't it? Love the dish as well. I was afraid to show the bacon we served with it, so I smiled when I saw your sausages...yeah!

Mary said...

We loved it over here too...next time I will try fewer eggs and see if that makes a difference.

Jess said...

Looks great! I'm also glad I'm not the only one who forgot the brown sugar!
