Slow Cooked French Toast!

Have you ever wanted a new and different idea for Mother's Day. There is always the traditional breakfast ideas, but this one is soooo different!! I must admit, I don't think I would make it for breakfast as it only has to cook about 3-4 hours which means I would be getting up way too early in the morning to have this breakfast ready for breakfast. I have become a morning person but this would be over the top. I would be like all those doughnut shop/bakery people who get up at 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. to have those fresh baked goods ready for us to consume. I just don't have the DNA to do that. Kudos to those who do get up and have those fresh pastries ready for us.

So how would I use this luscious recipe? I would make it for the dessert finale of the Mother's Day Meal. It would be cooking through the morning and be hot and ready for dessert. I can't tell you how good this breakfast...dessert is. My kids kept asking me when it would be ready as the smell permeated the house. Then, it was like holding back a starving animal from its food. My kids were far from starvation but you would have thought they hadn't seen food in years the way they dug into this breakfast dessert!

Humm? Am I recommending this dish? YES!!! It is worth trying. So without further we go!
