Chef Mom

I've collected these recipes from family members, out-of-print cookbooks, magazines, and the backs of food cartons. I've modified quite a few of them and, I think, made them even better. I only put my family's favorites on this site, because I'd like for my friends to have as many good food memories as we do. Enjoy...

Fabulous Deep Dish French Toast

This is the best french toast ever made. Make it the night before, refrigerate and pop in the oven the next morning. Great for house guests or special occasions, it has a bread pudding-type consistency.


8 slices bakery-quality white bread
2 eight oz. packages cream cheese
A dozen eggs
2 cups milk
1/3 cup maple syrup


Cube bread, place half in lightly greased 9 1/2" x 13" pan.
Cube cream cheese, place on top of bread. Cover with remaining bread.
Mix eggs, syrup and milk and pour over bread.
Refrigerate overnight.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.

Prep time: 10 minutes and overnight refrigeration
Cook time: 45 minutes
Serves: 8-10 people

This sounds amazing. enough to give you a coronary or at least make your arteries beg for forgiveness, but amazing all the same.

Oh, for the days when heartburn does not guide my normally prolific cooking nature...
