Dutch Oven French Toast



This recipe is so good!  We were camping on the 4th of July, but I still wanted to make something festive, so I decided on a red, white & blue french toast made in the dutch oven!  It was delightful!  You can also cook it in a 9 x 13 pan at home in your oven.


Dutch Oven French Toast

Melt 1 1/2 sticks of butter in a hot dutch oven.  Add 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon and stir.  Cut a loaf of Texas Toast bread slices into halves or quarters and layer on top of the butter/brown sugar mixture.  

In a bowl, mix 2 cups of milk, 6 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup of berries.  I used a mix of blueberries and quartered strawberries.  Pour over the bread.  Cover and cook at 350 for 30-45 minutes until done.  Serve warm with syrup and whipped cream!


We are having so much fun camping this summer!  I love enjoying the simple life here and there away from technology, phone calls and doctor's appointments!   We're heading out again this week!  I love my teeny tiny camper kitchen and how basic everything is when you're out in nature.  It makes me feel like a pioneer, which is actually what we're celebrating on the 24th of July.  

Happy Pioneer Day!

Looks like a delicious recipe. I haven't thought of French toast in a dutch oven. I'll have to give that a try. Glad you are enjoying some camping fun.
Summer doesn't stay long enough.
