Freezer French Toast -recipe

I used my homemade white bread for this...just because it is soooooooooo good with it.  But you can use any sort of bread you have on hand.  :) (But the thick, soft pieces of homemade white bread really work well as French Toast!)

Anyhow...this is really easy and simple.  Nothing you probably didn't already do when you make French Toast.  But I love that I discovered it freezes and reheats well! This worked out perfectly for camping for us.  I made them ahead of time, froze them in freezer bags and just threw them into the camper fridge. They were defrosted when we wanted to cook them and all I did was add them single layer in a pan and baked them til hot. This would also be great for a quick breakfast at home.

Here are the recipe details (although I did end up mixing up more egg mixture to cook more slices):

 Freezer French Toast
Makes 12-16 slices.
6 eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Dash cinnamon and vanilla
12-16 slices white bread

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. (I use a large skillet that covers two burners and I can fit 8 slices at a time.)

Have a cute little helper drop slices of bread into the egg mixture, then turn and coat the other side.

Cook in batches, flipping after a couple of minutes (when it starts to brown). Flip and cook for 2 more minutes. Cool then freeze in single layer. Once frozen (about two hours) they can be packaged individually or placed in a single freezer bag.

To reheat:
Remove from freezer, and heat in toaster (haven't tried this yet!) or oven, then serve with butter and syrup. yum!

I store them like this in the freezer:
