With back to school just around the corner, I am looking for ways to streamline our routines to make those hectic mornings a little easier. I am stocking our freezer with waffles, pancakes and muffins to have quick and easy breakfasts, as well as keeping easy recipes, like this Overnight Baked Peach French Toast, at the ready at all times.

Overnight Baked Peach French Toast puts a summer twist on our favorite French toast recipe (this Baked Pumpkin French Toast).  In lieu of pumpkin and spices, it has delicious, juicy peaches in every bite. Otherwise it is made with the same cinnamon bread cut into cubes, the same wonderful buttery brown sugar oat crumble topping that everyone loves and also made lighter using nonfat evaporated milk.  Everything about this Overnight Baked Peach French Toast is just so good…and easy too!  Overnight Baked Peach French Toast | alidaskitchen.com

For this recipe, I used canned peaches in 100% juice. The convenience of having already peeled, sliced peaches cannot be beat, and I used the reserved peach juice for sweetness and added peach flavor. Since canned peaches are available year round, we can enjoy the taste of summer on those cold winter mornings.
