Peaches ‘n Cream Overnight French Toast
There something so elegant about peaches and cream together! Peach season is ending here on the east coast so peach dishes abound! It’s a last ditch effort to hang on to my summer!
I love making breakfast while I am making dinner! I can get two things done at once and at least seem like I am productive, if only for a few moments! It’s easy to to put this dish together and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready for it in the morning. Peaches ‘n cream overnight french toast is similar to my overnight blueberry french toast bake ingredient-wise but with a few additions that give it a distinct spiced peach flavor.
If you are gluten or grain free, replace the bread with your favorite gluten-free bread or substitute with coconut flour muffins (or try this recipe). Need it to be dairy-free? Replace the milk and cream with coconut milk and coconut cream. The cream cheese can be coconut cream cheese or just leave it out. Replace the butter with coconut oil.
You can also used preserved peaches if fresh are no longer in season. It won’t be exactly the same but it’ll be a taste of summer during the cold, winter months. Learn how to preserve peaches here.
