The best part about cooking breakfast for Dad on Father's Day is that our gift will fit him to a "T.”
Let's whip up something that'll make him feel like a king, but without our having to rush all morning in the kitchen. The night before, we cut a loaf of French bread into thick slices and cut a slit in each slice about 3/4 of the way through, creating a pocket.
We spoon two heaping teaspoons chocolate chips into each pocket, pressing the bread gently to close. Place them all in a sprayed 9" x 13" baking dish and pour over them a mixture we've made by beating together 5 eggs, 1 cup milk, and 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon and vanilla extract.
Coat them well; cover it and into the fridge it goes until we want it the next morning.
You see, then there's no mess to clean up.
It's simply into a preheated 400 °F oven to bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes, while we let Dad sleep in a bit.
Those sweet aromas waft through the house from our French toast that's oozing with a smooth melt-in-our-mouth chocolate filling, and when we serve them up with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or a dollop of whipped cream.
Happy Father's Day! And if you'd like the recipe, just send a self-addressed, stamped envelope, marked "Chocolate Stuffed French Toast," to me, Mr. Food, right here at the station, or look for it online for showing Dad how much we care with a gift that fits him to a "T"! You know, it's so easy, this could be an any-time-of-the-year "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
