Baked Stuffed French Toast

Jeff and I are enjoying a lazy weekend with Jeff's sweet cousin Sarah from Minneapolis who flew out to San Diego to celebrate her 30th birthday in America's Finest City (we love this girl!). Lazy weekends are hard to come by for Jeff and me during this time of year when weddings are busy busy busy and the holidays are just around the corner, so what do we do during these rare days off in the gorgeous fall season? We eat. And eat. And eat some more...

Breakfast is a staple when people we love (like Sarah) come into town and this recipe is a make-ahead winner when fam is visiting and you want to enjoy a lazy-yet-decadent breakfast together. This french toast take on a Croque Madame with thick slices of ham and gruyere is unbelievably delicious and rich. Jeff is a lover of Croque Madame sandwiches, so he fell in love with this recipe instantly. The best part is that you can prep it the night before and then let it sit in the oven while you sip your coffee and catch up with your guests in your PJs.

Pugliese bread works perfectly for this too - any rustic bread will do well!

Trim the gruyere into thin slices that will get stuffed into the pieces of bread, and slice the loaf of bread into 8 thick pieces. They should be about an inch and a half  to two inches thick.

Make a slit halfway down each slice of bread and stuff it with a slice of ham and gruyere.

Then flip them over and let them soak for 30 minutes. This is when you can cover the dish and let them soak overnight in the fridge, which is what I recommend doing.

Once the slices are properly soaking, place a slice of ham and cheese onto of each piece, and put it in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Baked Stuffed French Toast

(View original recipe from Martha Stewart)

  • Unsalted butter, room temperature, for baking dish
  • 1 14-inch loaf rustic bread, such as pane Pugliese, cut into 8 slices
  • 8 thin slices ham, plus more for topping (optional)
  • 8 ounces Gruyere, thinly sliced, plus more for topping (optional)
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Pure maple syrup, such as Noble

Directions:

1. Butter bottom and sides of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Make a deep slit in each bread slice to create a pocket. Stuff each with 1 slice of ham, then divide cheese evenly among pockets.

2. Whisk together eggs and milk in a bowl until combined, and season with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture into prepared baking dish. Add bread slices in a single layer, gently pressing into egg mixture, and let soak 15 minutes. Flip bread You can soak the bread in the egg mixture for just 30 minutes, but the French toast will be even more delicious if you let it sit overnight. and gently press again into egg mixture. Let soak 15 minutes. (If preparing the day before, refrigerate up to 12 hours, loosely covered, then let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.)

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Top bread with remaining ham and cheese. Bake until egg mixture is set and cheese is melted, 20 to 25 minutes.

4. Turn oven to broil, with rack 4 to 6 inches from heat source. Broil until bread is toasted and golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve hot with maple syrup.

 

Hugs,
Erin

    

Leucadia Chiropractor - This is pretty cool! I would love to try this out, but I’m not sure if my sister will go for this, since she doesn’t really like eggs as much as the rest of us do. Can I alternate gouda with gruyere?

Piedmont Estate Wedding, Part One
Christian and Richelle

Richelle is one of those confident girls that knew her perfect match would come. She's gorgeous, smart, confident, and kind, and she definitely had no shortage of suitors. Boys would come into her life often, but she kindly refused, knowing that she wasn't going to settle, and she didn't want to mess around in the meantime.

Enter Christian.

Immediately, Richelle and Christian both knew that they had found someone special - that this could be the person that they would spend their life with. But even though their hearts were smitten, they dated for three years and built a relationship that could carry them into their many many more years together that would surely come.

So when the day came for Christian and Richelle to say "I do," it was a heartfelt celebration for everyone involved. Christian and Richelle's steadfast wisdom and sincerity had already brought them insurmountable joy, but witnessing the moment they had both been waiting for so patiently was priceless.

Christian and Richelle have an incredible community that surrounds them, and some of their wonderful friends opened up their gorgeous estate in Piedmont to host the wedding. Everything about this day heartfelt and picturesque, and we began with Christian and Richelle giving each other letters they had written to each other for the morning of their wedding.

Everything about the ranch was simply breathtaking, but there's something especially pretty about the blue hills, golden fields, and adorable horses that define this magical place.
