Christmas Tree French Toast: Easy Christmas Breakfast

 Christmas Tree French Toast Last year I shared some of our family Christmas traditions and one of those traditions includes making Christmas Tree French Toast every year for Christmas morning breakfast.    My boys love this because it is fun to eat and I love it because it is simple to make and doesn’t take any additional prep time than just French toast and sausage alone.  Christmas morning is a time to relax and have fun with the kids, not slave away in the kitchen. This is really self-explanatory but I have learned a few things over the years that make these even easier to make.  You want to try and use Texas toast (No, not the garlic bread kind 😉 ) because it is fat and pretty much square.  You can typically find it with the other bread in your grocery store although my local store doesn’t always carry it.  If you can’t find it then try to find a brand, like Wonder Bread that is still fairly square.
