Leftover Biscuit French Toast
I am not a huge bread person but there is something about warm, buttered biscuits that just makes me happy. In most canned biscuits that I buy, 8 come to a can. While I could eat a whole can with my kids, we often have leftover biscuits that we always mean to eat later. By the next morning, even if stored in an airtight container, they are just too hard and have lost their appeal. I used to toss them until I saw a recipe once for Leftover Biscuit French Toast. I made it one weekend and we all ate it up. It is now a must the next morning after having biscuits with dinner!
The recipe is super easy, the biscuits come out crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and the flavor cannot be beat!
- 4 leftover biscuits (you can also use freshly baked)
- 5 eggs
- 3 egg yolks
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 4 tbsp butter
- In a casserole dish, add the 5 egg, the egg yolks, the heavy cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir well. Cut the leftover biscuits in half and place in the dish. Let sit 5-10 minutes. Flip the biscuits and let them sit again. The older the biscuits, the more they need to sit.
- In a skillet, add 2 tbsp of butter and let melt. Add the biscuits and let them brown, maybe 3 minutes on each side. Serve with real maple syrup and dust with powdered sugar.
As a mom cook, I am not tied to measurements when I cook. So you can adjust the cream, vanilla and cinnamon to your liking.
The kids LOVE this recipe and eat it as is but you can add whipped cream to the top, fruit and even chocolate chips! It is a delicious breakfast that will start anyone’s day with a smile!
