Nutty Baked French Toast

Although my family prefers “regular” French toast, this is a good way to have a nice homemade breakfast when you don’t have time to prepare it in the morning, or if you want breakfast to bake while you are busy doing other things (feeding a baby, cleaning the house, taking a shower, etc.)

3 eggs
2 cups milk (goat, hemp, or rice)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
8-12 slices bread (depending on size, any kind of bread works)
2-3 Tbsp. almond butter

Topping:
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Grease a 9×12 baking dish. Mix first 4 ingredients together. Put half the bread into the pan, spread with the almond butter, and top with the rest of the bread. Pour the batter over the bread. Mix topping ingredients together and spread over top layer of bread.

You can wrap tightly and refrigerate overnight or freeze, if desired.
When ready to bake, bake uncovered at 400 F for 30 minutes (if frozen, you will need to bake longer).

Feeds 4 hungry adults/teens, or 8 children (or some combination of the two), or 8 adults as part of a buffet. If you want to stetch it out even further, you can throw some bacon on a baking sheet and bake that along with it, see tips on baking bacon here.
