Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb maple breakfast sausage or regular
  • 3 slices bacon cooked, diced in large chunks
  • 5 large cinnamon glazed donuts 5-6 cups, cut into 1" cubes - you can also used regular glazed donuts, cinnamon rolls or even thick sliced Hawaiian bread or rolls
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Brown bacon and drain (undercook it)
    3 slices bacon
  • Brown sausage and drain (I tried doing them together – the bacon takes about 3 minutes longer)
    1 lb maple breakfast sausage
  • Place cubed donuts in baking dish and set aside.
    5 large cinnamon glazed donuts
  • Add sausage and bacon to donuts
  • In separate bowl, whisk half and half, cream, eggs, syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
    1 cup half and half, 1 cup heavy cream, 6 eggs, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp vanilla
  • Pour egg mixture over donuts and gently press all bread into liquid until all bread is coated.
  • Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes for easier serving.
  • Top with additional maple syrup and enjoy!

Notes

– You can use any variety of sweet breads for this french toast bake – I love these giant cinnamon glazed donuts that I get at Meijer – they’re usually 4 for $2 – but you can use whatever you have or like – regular glazed donuts, Hawaiian bread, etc. You need about 5-6 cups of largely diced bread.
– Not a fan of sausage or bacon? You can just use all bacon or all sausage. If going with all bacon – I would double the bacon to 6 slices.
– Be sure to UNDERCOOK the bacon a little – you don’t want it crispy – it will continue to cook when you bake it.
– Splurge and use real maple syrup – it’s worth it!
