I am an enormous fan of brunch. If I could, I’d brunch a day, especially since you'll sleep during a bit yet still enjoys all of its breakfast glory, like this baked French toast.

Now this French toast is super simple, super easy and basically fool-proof. better of all, this will be made the night before. No wait, scratch that, this is often meant to be made the night before. Sure, you'll make it a few of hours beforehand but you actually want to offer it a full night in order that your bread slices can take in all that goodness.
