I am exhausted! Not because I partied or shopped or stayed out even remotely late. No no…none of that. It’s Sunday night and I’ve been baking NONSTOP since Thursday. Yawn….
Each year I get together with my friends for Christmas Cookie baking and gift exchange and Kara does the same with her friends. My party was Saturday and Kara’s was Sunday. It was a lot of prep but so much fun!! And now…well I’m only comfortable wearing leggings and I’m 4-8 pounds heavier.
Christmas is allllmost here! I’m starting to count down the days!! Are your gifts picked out, purchased, wrapped and under the tree…or are you a last minute shopper? Generally I wait till the last minute! I’m extra pumped for Christmas this year because it’s the first one with little Winnie crawling around.
For as long as I can remember, our Christmas morning tradition was eating cinnamon rolls (fresh out of the oven) right after we opened up presents. While I normally like to stick with tradition, we might need to change it up this year and make these French Toast Bundles for Christmas morning breakfast.
Our French Toast Bundles are similar to pigs in a blanket, but they’re made with breakfast sausages instead of lil’ wieners and french toast instead of croissants. They were so good!!!
Also…Congratulations to Hannah for winning our cookie stencils giveaway. And just in time for Christmas cookies!! Hope you enjoy
- 12 pork breakfast sausage links
- 12 slices country white bread
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup milk
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch nutmeg
- pinch salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter
- confectioners’ sugar, optional
- maple syrup, optional
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the sausages in a single layer. Bake until lightly golden and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a paper towel lined plate.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
- Trim the crusts off all the bread slices then cut each piece of bread into a 2-by-4 inch rectangle. Gently press down with your fingers to flatten the bread.
- Starting at the short end, roll each piece of bread around 1 sausage link. Press the end firmly to seal.
- Transfer the bundle to the egg mixture and coat all sides with the egg wash.
- Melt butter in a large skillet. Cook 6 bundles at a time, rotating occasionally, until golden brown on all sides.
- Top with a dusting of confectioners’ sugar and maple syrup, optional. Serve warm.
