Berry Good French Toast Bake

The Inn at Lonesome Hollow near Soldiers’ Grove in Wisconsin is one of the most popular bed & breakfasts in the state. If you’re going to make a name for yourself in the B&B business, you’d better have a dynamite breakfast. And this twist on French toast certainly fits the bill. Oh, and this is another one that tastes better when you make it the night before. Serves 8.

½ teaspoon vanilla
