Are you looking for a way to pamper Mom this Mother’s Day? How about starting her special day with breakfast in bed! It's a delicious idea that never gets old. There are many ways kids can help, too.
Here are some fun and creative ways to tell Mom how much she’s loved:
Oven-Baked French Toast
8 slices of your favorite French bread (or try something different like a fluffy brioche or cinnamon swirl bread)
butter or cooking spray
2 tbsp sugar
2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Grease a large rectangular baking dish with butter or cooking spray. Lay the slices of bread in the baking dish like playing cards ? each slice slightly overlapping the one before. In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat together the sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla; pour over bread. Cover the pan and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, uncover the pan and sprinkle the French toast with nutmeg. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 45 minutes until the bread begins to turn golden brown. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar and don’t forget the syrup. Makes 8 servings.
Serve your French toast with fresh fruit and, perhaps, a mimosa! Mom will feel like a queen on her special day.
