Baileys Baked Goodness

Our Christmas Days were beautiful and full of family, rest, reflections, and fantastic food. I served up the following baked french toast on Christmas Morning and quite like it! The top is all crispy with a hint o’ Irish, while the bottom is moist and ‘french toasty’. I think this will be a traditional Christmas Day offering for us!

Christmas Brunch

      Dee’s Baked Irish Toast
