The French Toast was amazing -- lots of milk, eggs, thick beautiful bread slices, and booze. You can't forget the booze.
This year we hosted New Years Brunch on purpose and I wanted to do baked French Toast again; it's the perfect meal after a late night on the town. Enter Smitten Kitchen's Boozy Baked French Toast which was exactly what I was looking for.
I assembled two pans of the French Bread using Challah Bread from Fresh Market and Bailey's and Cointreau for the boozy part.
I made them on New Years Eve before going out to celebrate, so everything was ready for the morning of the 1st -- I just had to preheat the oven and pop the pans in for half an hour.
Guests brought delicious sides and Matt tackled the Mimosas and Bloody Marys to help complete the meal.
Hope everyone else started out the New Year in an equally delicious way!
