This year my mom came out to Los Angeles a few days before Christmas to celebrate with Tony and I. We woke up on the Sunday before Christmas and did everything just as if it really were Christmas morning. We opened gifts and made a fancy breakfast and lounged around all day drinking eggnog. Oh, the eggnog…I can’t seam to quit the stuff.
For Christmas I like to make something that can be prepared the night before. Because really….who wants to be in the kitchen when you can be hanging out by the tree? Last time I was at Jani’s house (my BFF), she made Paula Dean’s French Toast Casserole dish and SERVED IT TO US IN BED!!!!! I’ve never forgotten it! So I decided to make it for our Faux Christmas Morning. Served with fresh strawberries, it was sinful…super rich, also super duper easy to make. Thow everything together the day before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I wanted to pass along the recipe here. The only thing it could have used was a dollup of Crème Fraîche or Fresh Whipped Cream to chill out all that sweet.
I snapped a quick pic before I tore into mine…..
