Baked French Toast

Happy new year everyone! I don’t know about you, but my holiday season went by in the blink of an eye! We had a blast spending time with family and friends. This month I wanted to share with you one of my favorite breakfasts. It’s full of comfort to get you through these cold mornings. The French toast is crunchy and dripping with homemade buttermilk syrup.  I love it topped with homemade jam and strawberries. You can also stuff cream cheese into each slice, which is very popular amongst my family.
