Happy Monday-after-Thanksgiving, friends! Today is a glorious day. Why? because we’re getting in the holiday spirit with this Easy Gingerbread French Toast Bake! 🙂
CONFESSION: I’ve been listening to Christmas music since October. I know, I know. Shame. But I just can’t help myself, y’all! This is truly my favorite time of year!
In my defense, the Christmas tree didn’t go up until the day after Thanksgiving, as is perfectly acceptable by most of society. So you can be proud of me for that! I’ve tempted to put it up for weeks now. And I must say, it’s looking pretty warm, cozy, and fabulous in our new home. I’ll be posting about it later this month!
One of my favorite things about this time of year (aside from being with family, friends, holiday parties, and the spirit of giving) is all of the delicious food!
This Easy Gingerbread French Toast Bake is perfect for a holiday breakfast or brunch recipe!
I made this recipe the day before Thanksgiving when my family was in town. They absolutely loved it! It’s sweet, hearty, warm, delicious, and makes your house smell amazing.
Something that I added to take this Easy Gingerbread French Toast Bake recipe to the next level was Hiland Dairy Lowfat Milk (perfect for adding a little protein to the mix) and Hiland Dairy Salted Butter! I mixed the salted butter with maple syrup and coconut sugar to make a sweet topping that ended up being 😍😍😍!!!
