i have an easy yummy recipe for you to make for this weekend.
it's so nice to make it quickly the night before and then have a hot breakfast in the morning when you are sleepy.
that is a HUGE reason why breakfast isn't my thing... i am not a morning person.
i am too tired and out of it to consciously make a dish without messing it up.
so... the make ahead stuff is great for my night owl personality.
you need a loaf of bread, eggs, pumpkin, vanilla, milk, pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar.
cut the loaf of bread into cubes.
i just buy a loaf of italian or french bread for this and cut the whole thing up.
if you arent' cooking for a crowd like i am at every meal... you don't need to use the whole loaf.
put the cubes in a 9x13 dish and mix up all the ingredients except brown sugar.
pour that over all the bread cubes covering the cubes completely.
if there is a place where the batter did not get on the cubes use a rubber spatula and gently smoosh it down until all the bread cubes are soaked in the batter.
THEN cover it and place it in the refrigerator overnight.
in the morning.... preheat your oven to 350.
uncover your dish.
sprinkle the brown sugar over the top of the dish.
BAKE at 350 uncovered for 40 - 45 minutes.
It smells amazing as it cooks.
like you are making pumpkin pie for breakfast.
we top it off with syrup... each person putting on their own amount.
seriously.... such a treat for a weekend morning.
you can make a smaller amount by using a little less eggs and milk.
i don't think you would need to change the pumpkin, vanilla and spices though.
i am super hungry right now.... i wish thees pictures weren't from last week.
