French Toast Casserole
¾ cup unsalted butter
1½ cups packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
1 loaf extra-thick sliced white bread, without crusts
2 cups whole milk
6 large eggs
1 cup berries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter. Stir in the sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon to make a paste. Spread it in the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch casserole. Lay bread on top in two layers.
In a separate bowl, combine the milk, eggs and remaining cinnamon. Pour over bread. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top has risen and is golden brown. Top with berries.
Yield: Serves 6 to 8.
