Baked Filled French Toast

French toast, filled with a ground beef mixture, topped with a white sauce and then baked - what's not to like?

I used two 20 x 30cm oven dishes which made 10 single portions {as we are all adults we had double portions, which served 5 of us in other words}.  The bread slices which I have used are quite big, so I packed the first layer, then cut the other slices to fill the gaps on the sides.  When you dish this up, the last thing anyone will notice is the break in the bread layers.

However, if you have larger oven dishes or want to make single layers {and not use the full available space in a larger dish}, go right ahead.


{slightly adapted from EENSKOTTLTREFFERS}

{5 - 10 servings}

14 slices of Bread {I used white}
5 Extra-Large Eggs
1 cup Milk
Aromat/Fondor or your favorite seasoning mix, to taste
Oil, for cooking
2 TB Margarine
1 Large Onion, chopped
1kg Lean Ground Beef   {Mince}
Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
2 t Paprika
1 t Tabasco Sauce
2 TB Flour
1/4 cup Water
3 cups White Sauce, homemade or store-bought
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray two large oven dishes with cooking spray.
2.) Beat the Eggs, Milk and the Aromat/Fondor together - heat a little Oil in a large pan - dip each slice of bread into the Egg and cook in the pan, both sides until done {pack into the bottom of your oven dishes as you go along} - once both oven dishes are lined with French toast, place the remaining cooked French toast aside.
3.) Melt the Margarine in the same pan - saute the Onion until soft - add the Ground Beef and cook until done - season to taste with Salt & Pepper - add the Paprika, Tabasco Sauce and the Flour to the meat mixture - stir well to mix - add the Water - simmer over low heat for 5 minutes - remove from heat.
4.) Scoop the meat mixture over the layer of French toast in the oven dishes - top with the remaining French toast - pour the White Sauce over - sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.
5.) Bake 20 minutes until the Cheese has melted.

Use an Egg lifter to remove {you might have to cut it into portions first} Serve with a salad or two !

Something different for a weeknight meal perhaps?

Ciao for now,

Linking up with these cool parties - also see my complete Party List:


  1. I love that this is an easy meal idea!

  2. I love that you use bread it would be perfect for using day old stuff :)

  3. I have never had a savory french toast! Look good...but what kind of seasoning is Aromat/Fonder? I've never heard of either one.

  4. I have never thought about a savory french toast looks really good!
