Give French toast a holiday makeover! Transform plain white bread into spiced Gingerbread French Toast -- cookie cutters are optional, but it makes breakfast even more magical!
Notes on bread:
Very thin, presliced white bread is often too delicate for French toast. If using presliced, find the thickest bread you can find and air it out (make-ahead notes below). Other good choices for bread to use is challah or French bread.
Making this on Christmas morning? You can make the bread cutouts the night before! Lay them out on a baking sheet -- airing out the bread overnight will actually make it better for soaking up the custard.
If you wish, you could combine the ingredients for the custard and chill in the refrigerator overnight.
