What?
You thought this was a breakfast food?
Sorry…we don’t eat much for breakfast in this house:-)
so it ends up being a bed time snack!

But if you get up early enough to make this…
more power to you.
(I recommend reheating in a microwave, if you aren’t a morning person like me:-)

    So happy you got Recipage to work. Looks awesome!!
    This is one delicious looking breakfast. For a saturday. Cause we don’t eat a big breakfast during the week either. I’m a bad mom.

    You had to ruin it with coconut didn’t you? ;) It looks delicious girl, but I am skeptical about the coconut. Hmmmm. Maybe you’ll have to come make me some, so that I can test it out.

    I know we would get along great – this sounds like a heavenly french toast/bread pudding! If I really want to be bad I think I might substitute the milk for half & half. Thanks for the recipe! These look amazing.

    Normally, I am looking just for recipes for my son, but these are to die for and I WILL make them just for me.

    Nice to meet you! (new follower from It’s a keeper!)
