Recipe Tips

  • Make ahead! Assemble French toast bake the night before. When ready to bake, remove from refrigerator, uncover, flip bread slices one more time, and drizzle with melted butter. Bake 5 to 8 minutes longer than above recipe or until tops are light golden brown.
  • Use a serrated bread knife to easily cut bread slices. Discard loaf ends so each slice will readily soak up egg mixture.
  • Also look for YQ by Yoplait™ Vanilla in the larger 26 oz container.
