Add summer peaches and almonds to a French toast bake for a breakfast you’ll enjoy all summer long.
Happy Friday friends!
I’m super excited for this weekend- my mom is in town and we have a fun-filled Boston weekend planned. We kicked things off last night at the Billy Joel concert at Fenway. I’ve seen Billy Joel a few times before and he is always amazing. But seeing him at Fenway with my mom made it even better! He’s one of my favorite artists of all time and I grew up loving his music thanks to my parents.
No weekend is complete without brunch and my Peach and Almond French Toast Bake is the perfect summer brunch recipe. I’ve talked about French Toast Bakes before and I absolutely love customizing them with the season’s flavors. By adding fresh peaches, almonds and brown sugar to the top of this casserole, you get a summery sweetness to your french toast. Try it this weekend and see for yourself!
