Gingerbread French Toast Bake- get your gingerbread fix for breakfast with this delicious french toast baked with the flavors of molasses, ginger and cinnamon for a breakfast so sweet you’ll be thinking it is dessert!
Happy Monday! Only two days of work this week for me and then it’s lot of time with family and friends! I can’t wait. We kicked off the celebrations early yesterday with a family Christmas brunch. It was such a nice day and great way to kick off the holiday week. I made this Gingerbread French Toast bake to bring some festive flavors to our brunch. Our family loved it and I am sure yours will too.
One of my favorite things about french toast bakes like this one (and also this one I shared before) is that you do all the prep work the night before. Then in the morning, you just pop it in for 30 minutes while you get ready for the day or spend time with your family and friends. This makes it perfect for breakfast over the holiday season when hosting guests.
Hope you also have a short work week planned! Take advantage of some of the time off by making this sweet and flavorful Gingerbread French Toast Bake!
