We love eggs around here. It’s one of those things that I always, always reach for when I need a quick and easy meal. Everyone loves them and they are so simple to cook, as well as being so versatile. I actually buy my eggs in giant flats instead of the usual carton of 12 just because we go through SO many of them. I’d be heading to the store several times a week to buy eggs if I didn’t!
So I was very excited to be able to partner with Egg Farmers of Canada to bring you a holiday recipe that is simple and easy to make.
I love that Canada Grade A eggs are among the best in the world for quality and freshness – they actually travel from the farm to your kitchen in less than 5 days, regardless of where you shop!
When I think of a Christmas morning meal, I always think of French toast. When I was growing up, we had French toast every Christmas morning. But before we started that little tradition, we used to have something called Christmas wife-saver every year. I’ll be honest – I wasn’t really a fan. I just could not get on board with this particular casserole (although, who knows, my tastes have changed – maybe I’d like it now!).
At any rate, I was a very happy camper when at some point my family started having French toast every Christmas morning instead. SO much better! And now French toast is often my go to plan for holiday meals.
I do, however, understand the appeal of a dish like the “wife-saver” casserole. Make it the night before and all you have to do in the morning is toss it in the oven – and have more time to spend with your family – that’s amazing.
So today I have apple crisp French toast casserole for you. It’s a make ahead casserole that tastes like French toast. And apple crisp. It’s basically dessert for breakfast. That you can make ahead of time and therefore have no fuss at all on Christmas morning!
I love how easy this French toast casserole is to make, and my family loved having their French toast mixed with baked apples and a crunchy, crispy oatmeal topping. This breakfast dish is a perfect way to simplify your Christmas morning!
