Overnight Peach French Toast

I like to keep breakfast pretty healthy.  It is the first meal of the day and I like to serve something good for my family.  But occasionally I will serve a special treat for breakfast, something that is not so healthy. Usually this happens on a weekend or holiday when I have more time and want something special.

One of the treats we like for breakfast is Baked French Toast.  I have a freezer version, which I really like because I can make it ahead of time. Then it is ready in the freezer when I need it.

I also have a regular version of baked french toast that we like. I like baked french toast because I can do all the work the night before and all I have to do in the morning is put it in the oven.

I recently went to the peach orchard and bought peaches, so I had peaches that I needed to use up.  I decided to change my baked french toast recipe around a little and make a peach version.  I am glad I tried this because it was really good. We all enjoyed it and because it has peaches in it, it is healthy, right?

If you have never had baked french toast it is not like regular french toast. They best way I can think to describe it is that it is a cross between regular french toast and bread pudding.

This recipe calls for french bread, which does give you the best texture.  But I usually just use what I have.  I don’t think homemade bread works well with this recipe.  The texture just is not right with it.  I do use regular store bought bread though.   When I made the peach version I used 100% whole wheat sandwich bread and it was good. I placed them two slices deep and used 12 slices total for a 9×13 pan.

  2. I will be making this tomorrow night! If I had everything I would be making it tonight, but unfortunately we are all out of peaches. This sounds soooo wonderful! I am adding it to my “definite” list right now!

  3. What a lovely thing to eat, in the morning! Definitely a special treat . Thanks, Lynn.

  4. Oh. This sounds really yummy. I’ve done a french toast version with apples before, but never with peaches. I’m going to have to try this one.

  5. Looks really good!

  6. I love the overnight breakfast recipes

  7. I have actually done this and my family loves it. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope you will join me at diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com for Crock Pot Wednesdays. The giveaways this weeks are really great!

  8. This looks amazing!

    What temp do you bake it at? I am going to assume 350.. lol

    Please let me know, as I am going to make this for my family ASAP!

  9. Yes, it is 350. Sorry about that. I will fix the post.

  10. thanks for that! I am going to serve this in the morning. I had to wait till i had brown sugar.

    I do have a question. will light corn syrup be ok? Can other fruits work as well? and how long will the stuff last? I mean assuming its not all gone that morning! How long would it keep in the fridge do you think? Or is it a one time wonder and best the first time? I am really enjoying looking through your recipes. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Faye, yes light corn syrup should be fine. I think blueberries would also be good in this. I think we could try other fruit as well. My family usually eats most of a pan in one breakfast, but I have 3 kids. If there is leftovers my husband reheats them for breakfast the next day. It is not quite as good, but he likes it. You could also make less of this easily if you think it would be to much.

  12. This recipe looks delicious! Since it is winter now could you use frozen peaches. Also, have you ever tried to freeze this recipe?

  13. This looks amazing! Do you think it would work the same with apples? While I would LOVE peach, the kids aren’t peach fans. Thanks!
