We're Serving Breakfast For Dinner!! #FoodieFriday #Recipe

Welcome to another installment of Foodie Friday! I must admit, I'm having fun with this; food is one of my favorite things to write about, because I love making it. Oh yes, and I also enjoy eating it. :)

Today I thought I'd share a recipe for Overnight French Toast with Caramel-Pecan Topping. Think pecan pie filling served on top of french toast!
Earlier this week I made "breakfast for dinner" and it was a huge hit. Even a certain family member - who shall remain unnamed - said that he wasn't excited about the meal when I mentioned it was breakfast foods, but he really enjoyed it! In fact, he had 3 helpings of the meal! So, let's get started...



Overnight French Toast With Caramel-Pecan Topping
Topping Ingredients:
1 cup Brown Sugar
6 T Butter
1/3 cup Whipping Cream
1-1/1 T Lite Corn Syrup
1/2 cup Chopped Pecans

French Toast Ingredients:
3 Eggs
1/2 cup Milk
1-1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 loaf French Bread, cut into 1/2 - 1 inch slices (you will need 8-10 slices).

Grease a 10x15 pan. Mix all topping ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat. Cook until butter is melted and mixture is smooth-do NOT let it boil! Pour into baking pan.

In a shallow dish, mix eggs, milk and vanilla. Dip bread into egg mixture; coat both sides. Place bread over topping in pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (Or, if you're doing this for dinner, prepare in the morning and refrigerate for 6-8 hours.)
Bake at 400º for 15-20 minutes, until toast is golden brown. Let stand 3-5 minutes. Place a large platter over the top of pan, and invert platter and baking dish, so the topping is on top of french toast. Pour any extra topping over the toast. Serve immediately.



Yes, this is delicious! Like, I-know-I-should-only-eat-one-piece-but-it's-so-good-I'm-eating-two! If-and that's a big if-you have any leftovers, simply cover and refrigerate, then reheat in the microwave. For dinner, I also served an egg souffle, but you could pair the french toast with any number of egg dishes. 



If you try the overnight french toast, leave a comment and tell me how you liked it!

This does look delicious. I love breakfast for dinner! I served eggs and bacon at dinner to my granddaughter once, and she told me we were only supposed to eat that in the morning , lol (she's a preschooler).
