Kings Hawaiian Baked French Toast- Yum!
I had the opportunity a few weeks ago, at Bloggy Boot Camp in Philly, to try Kings Hawaiian Bread products and of course, take them home for my family to try as well. Kings Hawaiian comes in Original Hawaiian Sweet, Honey Wheat, Savory Butter.
As most of you know, I am on Nutrisystem so I was staying real strong at the conference and decided to pass up the tasting. This was so hard because first, I am addicted to carbs and second, they just smelled so damn good. When I got home, my kids immediately spotted the bags of Kings Hawaiian in my hands. A nice afternoon snack for the kids, bread & butter! Well, Lucas couldn’t stop eating this “Hawaiian Bread” as he called it. After watching him indulge in his snack, I had to see what all the hype was about and I snuck half a piece of bread with 1/2 teaspoon of butter (it’s a must!). Well, I wish that I never had tasted it because I wanted to eat the entire bag. I thought to myself, “If I leave this bag around the house, we are all going to be sneaking pieces of bread.” Once the kids polished off the first bag within 24 hours, I still had a second bag. I decided that I could try a French Toast Bake with the second bag (kinda kill 2 birds with 1 stone since I am always half a sleep making breakfast for my early birds).
This is the easiest recipe and can be prepared the night before and just baked in the morning.
1 Bag of Kings Hawaiian Sweet
4 large eggs
1 3/4 cups of milk
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 cup of Confectionary Sugar to top
Break pieces of Kings Hawaiian Sweet Rolls into buttered baking dish. In large bowl whisk eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour mixture over the Kings Hawaiian bread slices (make sure to cover evenly) Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Next morning- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 26-30 mintues. (I had to put a piece of foil on to start, so the top didn’t burn, then I took the foil off for the last 17 minutes.
Sprinkle the Confectionary Sugar on top and enjoy! My kids had this for two mornings in a row and loved the sweetness of this dish. It took me about 5 minutes to prepare and saved me a ton of time in the morning. Visit Kings Hawaiian to sign up for promos and see where you can buy some “sweet” rolls near you.
