redemption

aw, that martha - she always comes through, doesnt she?

i know i skipped over a whole lot of stuff - thanksgiving being a big one - but its more important that i present you with martha's redemption...

see, i host christmas (ok, this was probably the last time i'll be hosting christmas, but whatever) and last year, i think my parents liked breakfast more than anything else... so i felt pressure to outdo myself this year...

i get these daily emails from martha - lots of them actually - but one really caught my eye and instantly, i knew what we'd be having for breakfast on christmas morning...

Baked French Toast with Mixed Berry Sauce
courtesy of Martha Stewart - small changes by me

4 large eggs
3/4 cup 1% milk
3/4 cup light cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 thick slices challah, brioche, or other egg bread (1 inch thick)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 bag (10 to 12 ounces) mixed berries, thawed
1/4 cup sugar



In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, whisk together eggs, milk, 1/4 cup sugar, vanilla, and salt.

Arrange bread in dish in a single layer; let soak 30 minutes. Turn bread over; cover, and refrigerate overnight.

the next day...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brush a rimmed baking sheet with butter.

Carefully transfer soaked bread to sheet.

Bake until French toast is set in center and lightly browned on the bottom, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine berries and remaining 1/4 cup sugar, mashing lightly with a fork.

Remove french toast from baking sheet and top with berry sauce.
