I really don’t like being a picky eater, but I am. Yes, it’s true… I can’t stand onions. They gross me out. BUT, having said that I actually like french fried onions… maybe because they’re breaded and fried makes them okay. Not sure just yet, but all I do know is that I can eat them (and LIKE them) without gagging like regular onions. 😉
This next recipe I’m sharing is topped off with those delicious french fried onions and filled with all sorts of goodness like chicken, cheese, sour cream, mayo and almonds. It is DELICIOUS!
1 loaf sourdough bread (we used Pepperidge Farm loaf)
2 cups milk
½ cup heavy cream
¾ cup sugar
2 TB vanilla
½ cup flour
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup cold butter, cut into pieces
Cut loaf into cubes and place evenly in a greased 9×13 pan.
In a bowl, mix together eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar and vanilla. Pour evenly over bread.
Cover your pan with Saran Wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Mix together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl.
Cut in butter with this mixture until crumbly and place in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate overnight as well.
Take pan and Ziploc out when ready to bake. Sprinkle crumbly mixture evenly over the bread.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on how soft you like it.
