Rainey Thanksgiving Day French Toast Recipe

This recipe became a family tradition for Thanksgiving brunch.
By Barbara Rainey


Many readers have asked for this recipe, which we've mentioned in various FamilyLife Today® programs about how our family celebrated Thanksgiving as our kids were growing up.  Usually we went to my parents' home for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, but earlier in the day we enjoyed French toast at a family brunch. Warning: This French toast is very filling!

½ cup margarine

1 ½ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

8-12 slices of bread

8-9 eggs

pinch of salt

1¾ to 2 cups milk

Melt margarine in a 9 x 13 pan. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and stir. Layer bread on mixture. Beat eggs and salt together, then add milk. Pour over bread. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight. The next morning, uncover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Cut into squares and place upside down on plate so melted sugar/cinnamon is on top.

“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:9, ESV)
