Maybe you already do this, but when I saw it on TV I thought it was
pretty neat. To save energy you could put some in the oven with
dinner and then just reheat it in the morning. We had ours for
dinner last night and I baked cookies at the same time to make it
worth turning the oven on. It was pretty good! Well, ok, the
cookies were better. )

I by the way, I used plain old milk instead of half and half.

Oven-Baked French Toast
6 servings

12 slices cinnamon bread or cinnamon raisin bread
1 pint (16 oz.) half and half or light cream
2 large eggs
6 Tbsp. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spread, melted
2 Tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. grated orange peel (optional)
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg (optional)

Preheat oven to 350?.

In lightly greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan, arrange bread slices in
two layers.

In large bowl, with wire whisk, blend remaining ingredients. Evenly

pour over bread slices, pressing bread down until some liquid is
absorbed and bread does not float. Bake 45 minutes or until center
reaches 160? and bread is golden brown. Serve hot and sprinkle, if
desired, with confectioners sugar.

*SUGGESTION: Freeze leftover French toast in airtight container. To
reheat, let come to room temperature, then arrange on baking sheet
and bake at 350? until hot.
