French Toast Bake........What A Way To Start Off The Day

Down at the farm we have a big breakfast to start our day. Waking up early with the roosters is pretty tough sometimes. So why not try out this quick and easy recipe for French Toast. You can even make it the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning. Fry up some bacon if you want and a good cup of coffee and everyone will be on their way. This is a great "company" brunch item too. 

Rise and shine time to get up.
