Zucchini Bread French Toast

Here's a secret! I always double the recipe and make 2 loaves of zucchini bread. We enjoy one immediately and then freeze the other. When our kids are home for the weekend, or we have guests at our lake house, i can quickly take this out of freeze and make French toast! This is really a gourmet breakfast or brunch to enjoy. I love to add fresh fruit on top then drizzle pure maple syrup.

 

*CHEFS NOTE* You can make the French toast in advance just preheat your oven to 100 F and place on a baking sheet until ready to serve. You can also add crushed nuts to the bread after you dip in the eggs! My granddaughter loves when I grate a little dark chocolate to her zucchini french toast.
