Baked French Toast

I'm always on the look out for breakfast that I can mix up the night before and bake the next morning. We tried a new one today-- and I used my Whole Wheat Bread

12 pieces of Bread
6 eggs
1/2 to 1 c. milk
1 tsp Vanilla

Layer the pieces of bread in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Whisk eggs and milk and vanilla (approximately 2 cups total), pour over the bread. Sprinkle cinnamon on the top. Cover with foil, let sit in fridge all night. Place in cold oven and heat to 350 degrees. Bake for 30-40 min.  Serve with syrup.

What was the consistency cooked? Was it soggy? It sounds good, and I think my kids would like it - but I can't do soggy.

It's wasn't "soggy", really... maybe a custardy type consistency. Similar to pancakes when you put syrup on it, because it absorbed the syrup.
The bread I used is pretty dense, so if you use regular bread, it might be soggy. But you could try a small batch for your kids-- just use a 8x8 pan and put enough bread to fill in the bottom, then add a couple eggs (4 bread= 2 eggs, 2 bread= 1 egg, etc.) and a splash of milk. Let me know what you think! :-)
