We had a few fruit trees in our yard growing up, and my favorite was always the peach tree. I absolutely love to eat peaches in the summer. I don’t think there is a better snack on a hot day than a messy, juicy peach! I thought I would try a combination of my favorite breakfast with my favorite fruit, and it sure was delicious!
The best part about this recipe, is that you make it the night before and throw it in the oven in the morning for a quick, amazing breakfast!
2 cups whole milk (you could substitute this for any other milk, it just won't be as creamy)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 (15 oz) cans sliced peaches packed in juice, drained
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup heavy cream
Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Slice bread and lay in a tight, flat layer in dish. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with milk, sugar and vanilla until blended; pour over bread. Arrange peaches on top and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
Remove baking dish from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°F. Pour cream into a small pan; bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Drizzle over peaches and bake, uncovered, until casserole is lightly browned on top and just cooked through, 45 to 55 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
