French Toast Muffins

French Toast Muffins - easy to make, using things you already have in your pantry!! Your choice of bread, cubed and covered in egg and vanilla mixture, topped with a delicious sugary topping, and baked until golden and crispy. DELICIOUS!!

I’m kind of obsessed with breakfast and brunch, and thankfully my family is too! We especially love getting creative with French Toast, these little muffins were such a huge hit. They were a cinch to make and could easily be prepped the night before, refrigerated overnight and then baked in the morning. These would be perfect for special occasions, holidays or just for rushed weekday breakfasts.

The best part is that they’re made with pantry staples. Just grab a loaf of your favorite bread (white bread, challah, croissants or cinnamon raisin bread), cube it and let it dry out. Toss the bread into the liquid mixture, place into a 12 cup muffin pan, sprinkle with the topping and bake until golden brown and delicious!

If you’re looking for a great recipe to make for Thanksgiving or Christmas morning, you’ve gotta give these a try!
