Weekend guests? Make this scrumptious make-ahead French toast with brown sugar sauce. It’s sweet and easy!
1 (1-pound) loaf French bread
2 cups milk
6 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

Slice bread into 10 to 12 (1-inch thick) slices. Arrange bread slices on bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking dish; set aside.
Combine all remaining French toast ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Pour mixture over bread, covering all bread surfaces. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

I made this for Easter breakfast and it was delicious! I followed the exact directions except that I used Pepperidge Farm Brown Sugar Swirl Bread instead of French bread. It looked as good as it tasted. I will definitely make this again.
This recipe is amazing! So easy to make and tastes soooo good. Everyone loved it!
