  • Hubby makes ours, I know he uses white bread, eggs, sausage, onion, green peppers and velvetta, but nothing else. It's one of the few things he likes to cook, so I let him! LOL

  • year I made something called ' Christmas Morning Wife Saver' was a strata and should have been delicious but wasn't. Don't know how I messed it up! I still think about that,more than 20 years ago.

  • Flatten out a can of buiscuts on the bottom of a pie pan. Mix up some eggs, like you are going to make scrambled eggs. Make some sausage- whatever king you like and crumble it over the buiscuts. Poor the eggs over sausage and add cheese. Cook at 425 until eggs are done.

  • I have several. You can take apples, sautee them and add brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt till it melts. Pour this in the bottom of a greased 13X9 pan, and top with a layer of stale sweet bread, like brioche, or croissants, or even wheat bread, but that's not nearly as decadent. Fill the pan with the bread.

    Now, make French toast batter... It takes me about six eggs, then 1/2 Cup cream (can use milk, etc) A bit of sugar vanilla, and cinnamon, you can zest an orange in too if you want. Whisk all that together and pour it over the bread. poking and pushing it down as necessary You may have to puncture the bread with a fork, that's ok.

    Refrigerate over night. Take out the morning of Christmas for at least a half an hour. Then bake at 400 for 30-45 minutes, until tooth pick inserted in center comes free of crumbs. There maybe some caramel apple goodness on it, that's ok.

  • I'm making this- it's super easy, and I can just stick in the oven tomorrow morning.  I love Ellie Krieger recipes!

  • I had this recipe for a french toast casserole but I can not find my cook book now. It seemed like bread pudding.
