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!
