Today’s breakfast dish takes your regular old french toast casserole to a new level. The secret is the addition of flavored liquid coffee creamer. I chose to use International Delight’s raspberry white chocolate flavor. You could easily use any flavored creamer in it’s place. There are so many yummy flavors that the make now. The possibilities are endless with flavors like pumpkin pie spice, hazelnut, and gingerbread latte.
To make this even better, I decided to make a syrup using the creamer to top off the french toast. I was so excited the way it turned out. It helps ramp up the raspberry chocolate flavor. Now this syrup is so yummy, it would be delicious on any breakfast dish you top with syrup or dessert. Again, you can use any flavored coffee cream in place of the flavor I used of a new flavor of syrup. How about the flavor of southern butter pecan or english almond toffee! This will definitely be a special addition to a Christmas breakfast.
I will have giveaways running all this week so stop by and check out today’s giveaway. It should be a fun week!
