I decided to put my smoked ham in the crockpot. Yes!!! I put a cup of water, sliced a whole orange and arranged it in the bottom of the crock. I placed the smoked ham on the orange slices and dumped in 1 Tbsp. of whole cloves. I set the crockpot on low. When I woke up this morning, it was perfect!
Next, I had to find some kind of bready, egg dish. After scanning the internet, I decided on this Overnight French Toast recipe. I used a loaf of Tuscan bread I bought at Target on a whim yesterday in place of the brioche or challah. Although it calls for 8 eggs, I only used 7 because I ran out! The whole thing sat in the fridge overnight. This morning I baked it uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes. Surprisingly it came out perfectly! Paul described it as "crispy, not mushy, substantive, and tasted like a caramel roll." We served it with warm syrup, ham slices, and fresh oranges....rave reviews all around!
Here are a few pics of our morning....
Have a Beautiful Easter Sunday, Monday,
