    LOL, well to be completely honest - the Oven Chicken Fajitas were MEANT for Christmas Eve dinner. But we ate a late lunch and weren't hungry enough so in the freezer it all went!!! Will mostly likely have it sometime this coming week...

    My freezers look so empty minus all the cookies and cinnamon rolls and roasts, etc. Time to start planning how to fill them up again! :)

    It is like Christmas prep, always working on it.
    Thanks for keeping us all on track this year, it made the difference.

    I found this a few years ago, it is a Pioneer Woman Recipe.
    You can add the raspberries and chocolate if you wish. If using the berries and chocolate you may want to leave off the topping. We had it all and it was delicious and a very easy stress free breakfast.

    Baked French Toast
    1 Loaf crusty French Bread (best if at least 1 day old)
    8 eggs,
    2 cups milk,
    1/2 cup cream (or 2 1/2 cup milk),
    3/4 cup white sugar,
    2 tabs vanilla

    Optional
    Punnet fresh raspberries
    Block of white cooking chocolate chunked

    Topping
    1/2 cup plain flour
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 stick butter.

    Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
    Tear bread into chunks and place in pan, add raspberries and chocolate. Mix gently to distribute berries and chocolate.
    In a bowl mix eggs, milk and cream (if using) white sugar and vanilla.
    Pour over the bread, cover and store in fridge overnight.

    In a separate bowl mix flour, brown sugar and cinnamon.
    Add butter and mix until resembles breadcrumbs. Store in ziplok bag in fridge.

    When ready to bake preheat oven to 180c (not sure what this is in US temperatures but apparently 350)
    Sprinkle topping over the bread mix and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

    Oh my goodness... That sounds so good! Thank you for sharing this. I just might add that to our Easter breakfast menu. :)

    I am thinking that this will be great for Mother's Day brunch. Will serve it with waffles and fresh fruit or something like that. Not sure yet.
