French Toast Muffins Recipe

French Toast Muffins

My French toast muffin recipe. Putting a spin on ordinary French toast I decided to make small portable portions for Mother’s Day brunch.  Regular French toast is made by covering bread with milk and eggs then frying.  This variation will work great for your next breakfast gathering or to enjoy with friends and family.  If your family is like ours we enjoy breakfast at any time during the day.

French Toast Muffins

8 large eggs

2 1/2 cups milk

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1loaf Pepperidge Farm cinnamon swirl raisin bread

1 jar Smuckers pecans in syrup topping

6 slices turkey bacon

3 Hillshire Farm smoked sausages

Cook turkey bacon in skillet.  Set aside until cool then slice into small pieces.

sausage

Sauté half a chopped onion and chopped green onion in a pan.  Once it starts to brown add crumbled sausages stirring until browned.  Set aside and let cool.

In large bowl whisk together milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon.  Carefully pour this mixture over each muffin tin.  Press down gently on the bread to allow more liquid to be absorbed.

Wrap thoroughly with clear wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake muffins for 25 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.  Let muffins cool.  Serve with maple syrup.

This recipe can be easily modified to suit your tastes.  For example you can use strawberries instead of apples or use regular bacon instead of turkey bacon.  Since I made these for a large gathering I made many batches some with more or less ingredients.

Oh, if you’re a bird, be an early bird
And catch the worm for your breakfast plate.

But if you’re a worm, sleep late.”  Shel Silverstein
