On a cold, winter day, it’s always good to remember that we have a River House that we enjoy when the days are long and the sun is hot. Each Friday & Saturday finds us cooking hot dogs and s’mores by the fire. Each Sunday evening finds us with more leftover buns than you can imagine! How does that happen? Everyone who visits brings buns. Hot Dog Buns, Hamburg Buns and extra bread for making Mountain Pies (which we often don’t even bother with.) So, what to do with those leftover buns. For the last few years, I’ve entertained myself by putting packages of buns in unsuspecting peoples’ cars. (Another reason to lock your car!) But, now, I will be keeping the buns to make this delicious recipe! I tried it last night and it was a hit with the family.
French Toast Casserole (made with leftover buns!!)
1/2 C Melted Butter
1 C Brown Sugar
1 Loaf Bread (or your leftover buns!)
1 1/2 C Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
Melt butter and add sugar; Spread this mixture in a 9×13 pan. Beat Eggs, Milk and Vanilla. Place half the bread/buns on the bottom of the pan. Cover with 1/2 of the milk mixture; Layer more bread & top with remaining egg mixture. Cover and Chill overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. (covered for the first 30 minutes and uncovered for the last 15.)
