One of my favorite breakfast since childhood is French toast, that too baked one is really rich and delicious. I used the whole grain bread instead white. I usually marinate the breads overnight and bake them next morning at 350F. Seems little bit of work but it worth the wait next morning.

Bread - as many as you can fit in your tray ;)
I used 6 slices.
Milk - 1 cup
Eggs - 3
Salt - Pinch
Butter - 2 tbsp
Cream Cheese - 2 tbsp
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cinnamon and Nutmeg - 1/ tsp optional.
Pecans roasted - 2 tbsp

Chop off the corners if you want, Since I love them I kept it.
Mix all the ingredients except pecans and keep aside.
Arrange the breads in two layers, pour the milk-egg mixture evenly on top of it and in between the layers.
Cover it and refrigerate overnight.
Spread the toasted Pecans over the top.
Bake them next morning at 375F for 35mins.
Keep water in other tray inside the oven just to avoid the above layer from turning brown.
Serve with Maple syrup.

I love french toast so much, I've been having it (stuffed with ham and cheese and jam) every single night for dinner for 3 weeks now. I'm not kidding.

I already can tell that your baked french toast is way better than my microwaved one! But that's how terrible I am...if I want to eat a particular food right NOW, it simply cannot wait and I zap it in the microwave. Oh dear...thinking about french toast is making me want some now.....
