This year my 7 year old daughter will be having her first communion on Mother’s Day which makes it an extra special day!! I can’t believe she is this old already, but I also can’t believe that my oldest is 11! It’s a little bittersweet seeing them grow up. It’s nice seeing them mature and as they get older they help out around the house (which I really enjoy!) but it also means that before I know it they will be adults and leaving the nest.

Then I think of the big scary world out there and I kinda want them to stay little.

Anyone else in the same boat?

Can I bake this stuffed french toast?

Yes! A few changes will need to be made to the recipe below.

  • Instead of 2 large eggs use 4 and instead of 1/3 cup half and half use 1 cup.
  • Prepare filling and stuff as directed in step one and place in a small baking dish.
  • Combine the eggs, half and half, sugar, and vanilla and pour over the stuffed bread.  Using the back of a spatula, press bread down lightly to help soak up the egg mixture. Cover and chill for 2-24 hours turning carefully with a large spatula once or twice.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and carefully transfer the french toast to prepared pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown, turning once halfway through baking.

    Totally in the same boat. I told my 10-year-old when she was six to stop growing. She said, “I can’t help it! It’s Jesus’s fault!” She (and my other kids) would die if I would make this French toast. It would be like all their wildest dreams coming true!
