Baked Strawberry Almond French Toast

Serves 7


1 loaf Rhodes Bread Dough , baked and cooled
1 cup strawberry preserves
2 cups milk
5 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Cut loaf into 14 equal slices and set aside. Prepare sauce by combining sugar and water in a heavy pan. Cook over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Cover and cook over medium heat 1 minute. Uncover and continue to cook 5 more minutes (do not stir). Remove from heat, and let stand 1 minute. Add butter and stir until melted. Add evaporated milk, stirring constantly. Return to medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until mixture melts and is smooth. Remove from heat, stir in almond extract and salt. Pour sauce into a sprayed 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Arrange 7 bread slices in pan. Spread preserves evenly over bread and top with remaining 7 slices. In a bowl, combine milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Pour over bread and sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
