Make Ahead Cinnamon Freezer French Toast
When I make this, I use cinnamon bread from a local bakery and double or quadruple the recipe so that I can fill many bags with french toast in the freezer for busy morning.
  • 1 loaf of bread about 16 slices
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • zest of 1/2 an orange
  1. Whisk together the milk, eggs, spices, vanilla, and orange zest.
  2. Heat a skillet or griddle to medium heat and grease with some olive oil.
  3. Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture and cook on both sides until browned.
  4. Lay the cooked slices on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
  5. Place cookie sheet in freezer. By freezing them individually like this first, they won't stick together in the bag and will be easy to remove one at a time.
  6. Once frozen, place slices in a large resealable freezer bag.
  7. Remove excess air, seal and freeze.
  8. These make such an easy weekday breakfast. The French toast slices can be taken out one or two at a time and popped in the toaster or toaster oven. Top with syrup or fresh fruit.
