French toast

I was planning on making french toast tonight and heat it up in the morning. Would it taste the same? I just can't get up in the morning to make breakfast (6am).

As long as you refrigerate it, I'm sure it would be fine,.
I'd think the best way to reheat is in the oven, but since time is a factor, how about toasting it?
(Or using a toaster oven, if you've got one)

It should heat up nicely.

My sister makes French toast a loaf at a time and freezes it in individual servings. I think they re-heat it in the microwave.

Yes, you can reheat it, but it won't be as light or as moist as when it's eaten when just made.

How about making the egg mixture the night before, and when you get up toss some bread in it to soak and start your coffee (I assume you drink coffee, because you already don't sound like a morning person ).

You can start the pan heating with some butter too, and by the time the coffee is on its way you can toss the bread on. Once flip, a minute later and you have French Toast.

But perhaps it is not so much of a time thing, as the lack of concentration that comes with waking up against one's will. That's how it is for me! Cold cereal with blueberries is the extent of my culinary work ethic at that time of day!

That is what I do. For me the heating of the pan takes the longest, although my French toast requires longer than 1 minute per side.

Have you considered a french toast casserole? I prepare it the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning. My family likes it better than traditional french toast - PM me if you want the recipe......nice cinnamon crust on top, very tasty!
