TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: French toast recipe that can bake while getting ready in morning

TERRE HAUTE — Breakfast is my favorite meal. I always eat a good breakfast and “piece” the rest of the day. Mom use to fix French toast for us on Sunday mornings. Then when it came to lunch, we went and killed a chicken to eat. This French toast recipe is a little different from Mom’s. She never baked her’s. I use to when the boys were little. I could fix this the night before and bake next morning while I got the boys ready for school. When I got three little boys ready, their breakfast was ready also.

This recipe comes from OES District Seven Friends (Order Eastern Star). It comes from Barb Stoner. Thanks, Barb.
