In case you were wondering what  you should make for breakfast this weekend, go and make this!  (Yes, I’m off topic for corn week, but this one is good.)

Do you ever have that moment that you think, “Wow, why didn’t I ever think of this before?” That’s what I thought after I tasted this Peaches and Cream Baked French Toast with a Peachy Whiskey Glaze. It was good. Really good.

This baked French toast is layers of whole wheat bread and juicy peaches, soaked in sweet milk and beaten eggs, then baked until thick and fluffy and drizzled with an amazing whiskey glaze.

And this is so simple to throw together on a busy weekend morning. All it needs is some assembly and some baking time, a quick whisk of the drizzling ingredients, and it’s done.

This would be a perfect dish to take to a breakfast potluck. And it’s just as delicious leftover.

Substitute any fruit you like-I’ll make it again with blueberries for sure!
