French Toast Bake

I found a really good recipe for overnight french toast.  I usually am not organized enough at night to prepare anything at night to be cooked the following day, but I love this recipe.

I made this while we were on vacation with the lovely's family because we had two loaves of white bread left by mid-week and I knew we were not going to go through these in three days.

Great way to wow your family on vacay folks. 

Of course I must give credit...

But in case you don't want to click on this gal's blog, here's the recipe:

French Toast Bake
1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1 cup brown sugar
1 loaf Texas toast

1 1/2 cup milk

Powdered sugar for sprinkling

2. Pour butter/sugar mix into bottom of 9 x 13 pan....spread around
