I love waking up early on a Sunday morning to a clean kitchen and pouring the first cup of coffee while the house is still quiet. Then I fire up the Traeger and start prepping breakfast.
One morning I wanted to make a french toast bake because I had a loaf of Italian bread leftover. Mama Cheryl's been making this for years and it is a no-fail recipe.
Leela gets up at 6 am Central Time every day and is well-aware of who gets shiz done in this joint.
I’ve made Traeger’s Baked Blueberry French Toast Casserole that includes cream cheese and requires overnight refrigeration, and it is awesome. But, of course, I didn't plan ahead and decided to make this on-the-fly.
Don't hate, but I had no time to refrigerate!
You really need to try Mama Cheryl's Italian Bread. And throw some bacon and sausage on that grill!
Most French toast casseroles require to set in the fridge overnight. But I didn't have a whole night for that - plus, I'm not French - so I decided to try out a quick version. The family gave me a thumbs up.
- Don't be the last one awake at The Hotel Leela.
- We love the scent of a Traeger in the morning.... Smells like... VICTORY.
- Classic recipes can be updated to suit your available time, so don't be afraid to experiment.
