Arrange toasts in a greased 13×9-in. baking dish, take the bowl with remaining egg-liquid and pour it over the top of the bread. Cover the dish and put it into the fridge overnight or at least for an hour to steep.

When the oven is heated to 350┬░, bake the Toasts uncovered for 40 minutes. You can check if the dish is ready by inserting a toothpick or a knife in the center and make sure it comes out clean.
