Baked French Toast

This is one thing that all kids will love. My kids think it super yummy. They think it is pretty fun to eat it for dinner but also have it for breakfast as well. You can either eat it plain, with a little syrup or with a powdered sugar glaze drizzled on top. All options taste great!

Baked French Toast
1 loaf sourdough bread
8 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla

Cinnamon Strusel Topping
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar ~ packed
1 teaspoon cinnamon {I always add just a little more}
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter ~ cold and cut into pieces

Grease a 9x13 baking dish and tare bread into bite sized chunks. place bread chunks evenly in greased pan. Mix together eggs, milk, cream, sugar and vanilla. Pour evenly over bread chunks. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. 

In medium mixing bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt together. Mix till well blended. Cut in butter with fork or pastry blender and blend till well crumbly. Cover and refrigerate as well. When ready to bake, sprinkle strusel topping evenly over top of bread chunks. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour to1 hour 15 minutes.
