Coast Toast……Wonderful Breakfast!

I wanted to share this recipe…new to me.  Emily wanted Andi and I to eat breakfast at this cute little place in San Diego…looking over the coast because a) cute little cottage b) the best breakfast…Coast Toast c) lots of seals to watch.  This dish is somewhat like French Toast but tastes like Creme Brulee inside…very good.  So I did enjoy a,b,and c.  Forgot about the wonderful breakfast…a few days later Mike’s sister made Coast Toast for breakfast…equally wonderful and she shared her recipe.

Overnight French Toast

  • 10 ounces loaf French bread (or a full sized loaf of  Texas/Thick Slab Bread
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 3/4 t. salt
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 T. butter, cut into 5 pats
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon


1.  Grease 13 x 9 pan.  Cut bread into 1″wide strips.  Put one layer into the bottom of the pan.

2.  Beat eggs, milk, sugar, salt and vanilla in a large bowl.  Pour over bread.

3.  Cut each pat of butter into several pieces, enough so that each bread slice has a piece on it.  Sprinkle the top of the bread with cinnamon.  Cover with foil and refrigerate for up to 36 hours.

4.  When ready to cook, place pan in COLD oven.  Turn temperature to 350 degrees anda bake for 45-50 minutes.  When touched, it should spring back.  Allow to set for 5 minutes before serving.  Serve with syrup and/or confectioners sugar.

The preparation is very similar to the Breakfast casserole that is so easy…and I think everyone already has…we always have it for Christmas morning…sausage and eggs.

Getting ready to list a great house on Hoover tomorrow.  Great view, ranch, with 2 master suites and a good price…in Westerville, Ohio.  I am finally getting caught up from my visit with my daughters…and looking forward to Thanksgiving with both daughters again…Ohio State University vs. University of Michigan…Turkey Tailgate.
