Cinnamon French Toast Bake 2 It's a Keeper

Caramelized French Toast Bake

As you know, I absolutely love Christmas morning! It’s one of the times that I really enjoy making breakfast. Some of my favorite breakfast recipes are Christmas Morning Breakfast Braid and Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup. Oh, and Cowboy Sandwiches — how could I forget those?!?

Our plans have changed a bit for this Christmas morning. We are going to my sister’s house for brunch. I needed to find a recipe that would be easy to make and take with me. I came across this recipe for a French Toast Bake on Pinterest. It’s perfect for Christmas morning because I can assemble it all the day before and bake it when I’m ready.

Red Velvet Pancakes It's a Keeper

Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup

I’m on a mission to find some new recipes for Christmas morning. I think Christmas morning breakfast is my favorite time of the day. It’s that peaceful time after all of the gifts have been opened and before the house is full of family and friends. Sort of the lull between the storms.

I absolutely love this particular time of the day. I can sit back and enjoy breakfast. There’s no where to run off to. No appointments or errands or expectations for the morning. Except for maybe trying to free some toy from its Fort Knox style packaging.

Back to the recipe…I found this recipe for Red Velvet Pancakes in the December 2012 issue of Southern Living magazine (one of my favorite magazines!). I just loved the festive color!
