Nutella-Stuffed Baked French Toast

I mentioned recently how much I love French toast and even more, I love convenient French toast. Do you love make-ahead meals as much as I do? Prep the day ahead and pop it in the oven or cook on the stove. It makes it so easy and you can enjoy the day, holiday or celebration with family and friends.

When Bisquick approached me about joining in to share a couple of make-ahead recipes for this holiday season, I jumped at the chance. We love Bisquick in our family especially for garlic cheddar biscuits. Making things easier for yourself, planning using quick and simple recipes and planning ahead makes it so you can actually enjoy the time you have to spend with your family and friends this holiday season.

Fore more make-ahead ideas, you should definitely check out Betty Crocker’s Bisquick site and follow along via Pinterest and Facebook!

Arrange the Nutella sandwiches in a baking dish that’s been sprayed with baking spray. Pour the Bisquick mixture over the bread ensuring all pieces of bread are covered. Allow to sit for 15 minutes or overnight in your refrigerator and then bake for 45 minutes.
