What's for Dinner? Family-style French Toast

Dontcha love french toast?  Dontcha hate being stuck at the griddle cooking slices of french toast while your family eats your creation so it doesn't get cold?  The answer?  Family-style French toast.  Original recipe courtesy of my favorite site,!


  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 10-12 slices of bread
  • confectioners' sugar


  1. Combine brown sugar, butter and cinnamon; spread evenly in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; set aside. 
  2. Combine eggs and milk in a shallow dish; place bread in dish and coat with egg mixture. 
  3. Place bread on baking pan over sugar mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve brown sugar side up; dust with confectioners' sugar. 
Clean up hint:  Cover the pan as completely as possible, breaking slices to fit odd sized spots.  Every place the bread is on the pan, the brown sugar will stick to the bread and not the pan.  Exposed brown sugar will bake onto the pan and will be much harder to clean.

Great shots. Very well done.

Nice blog work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
