Introducing Breakfast Week: French Toast Casserole

For this week of TMJ disorder friendly recipes, we are going to feature breakfast items. Many TMJ patients skip breakfast because they are not feeling well in the morning…but as we’ve all heard since we were little, it’s the most important meal of the day!

1 loaf (16 ounces) cinnamon or cinnamon raisin bread (I like using Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Swirl) – cut into cubes
6 eggs
3 cups milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
confectioners’ sugar
maple syrup (optional)

Directions
Place the bread cubes into a greased 3-quart shallow baking dish. In a medium bowl, beat the milk, vanilla, and eggs with a whisk or fork. Pour the mixture over the bread, stir, and press the cubes down to coat them with the milk.
Cover and refrigerate for one hour or overnight if you have time.
Heat the oven to 350 F. Uncover the baking dish.
Bake for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with the confectioners’ sugar.
Serve with the syrup and fresh fruit, if desired.

When this comes out of the oven it is very easy to eat, so all stages of TMJ disorder patients should be able to enjoy it.
