Baked French Toast Recipe

This baked french toast recipe would be delicious for brunch. Because it is made with cheeses, it will go well with a fresh salad.


2/3 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 slices thick sliced bread of your choice
1 Tablespoon butter for greasing the dish
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
(Serves 2)


Preheat oven to 425.

Have ready a heat proof baking dish large enough to hold the 4 pieces of bread without stacking them.

In a food processor or blender, blend the cottage cheese, milk, sugar, egg, egg white, and vanilla for about 1 minute or until smooth.

Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish, place the bread pieces in, and let stand for 10 minutes, absorbing the mixture.

Place the empty baking dish into the preheated oven for about 5 minutes to heat the dish.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven,and use a pastry brush to paint 1 tablespoon of butter onto the hot surface. Place the soaked bread on it, and bake for 6 minutes.

Turn the bread over and bake 5 to 6 minutes longer or until golden brown.

Sprinkle the grated cheese onto the cooked french toast and return to the oven a few more minutes until the cheese has melted and is golden brown.

Serve with a green salad, tomatoes and a little freshly ground pepper.

Serve with no sugar added jam.
