I love french toast!!!!!! At first, I was never a fan of taking such a delicious classic and turning it into a casserole. But that god I did!! Its delicious It has all the flavors and textures of french toast but you get all of it in one single bite!! AMAZING! I was so surprised how good it was when I first made it. Now I make it almost every weekend! It is so easy!1 You just throw stuff in a pan then put it in the oven!! I love easy things that taste good. I’m a very lazy person!!

I have been jogging every morning lately and I hate running so it puts me in a bad mood. So what I do is make this before I jog, throw it in the oven, jog for 20 minutes and when I come back, there is a nice smell and a amazing casserole!!

Now, lets talk bread. The type of bread is your decision but I have a few tips. Don’t do a really soft bread because when all the flavors soak in, it will get soggy. I suggest french bread. It is hard but when the milk soaks in, it won’t get soggy just soft. But cut off the crust.

Say you don’t plain to make this but you are in the mood for it one morning. You might be able to still make it. Besides the bread, you will probably have these ingredients in your house on a ordinary basis. Its so nice to not expect but get it before when you wake up.

So, lets start!

French Toast with Peaches and Blueberries Casserole

Over the winter break I went to Charelston for two days. You go to Charleston to eat and that is honest.We took tours, saw landmarks, horse and bugge,and we ate. We went to this breakfast place called Virginias.It opened at 10:00am and we got there at like 9:55.So we got in and we looked behind us and there was a line outside the door! This place was packed!!!!! But anyway I ordered french toast. You were allowed to pick anything to put on it like strawberries,blueberries,powdered sugar,pecan syrup,or peaches. I really don’t know why I picked peaches not strawberries but I did. I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was amazing.They gave me 8 pieces of the french toast and I ate it in like 3 minutes.This was good stuff.I just loved it!!! I couldn’t believe it! So I kept thinking about my blog and how people would love it. There is one part I added though. The whipped cream. You could make it but it can take a long time which brings me too another story. When I was in sixth grade one day I came home and my sister Rebecca who went too the same school walked in the door and was like I want whipped cream. Really she did and I was like “okay random, but lets do it”. We could find the applience you hook into the mixer to make whip cream so we did it by hand. That took a while!!!! We made like 2 tablespoons of whipped cream so wasn’t all that worth it. But we added sugar to make it sweet. So after that not the most excited person making whip cream so I bought it. But you want to make it go ahead.

The french bread is one of my favorite types of bread so I love French toast. With the little brown sugar and cinnamon it has a sweet flavor and OMG  I’m like drooling right now. But the star of this is the peaches.AH The peaches they are ripe and juicy and add great flavor. When you bight into this and you get the french toast, whip cream, and the sweet spices, plus the toast you will eat that whole thing in less the 3 minutes. I know it sounds like a lot when you see how much prep time there is but its overnight so don’t worry.
