French Toast Casserole

Doesn't this sound like a great idea just from the title? I don't know why I never thought of this before. I love french toast for breakfast. This can be made the night before and refrigerated, covered, before popping it into the preheated oven in the morning. I melted my butter in the microwave for 22 seconds and that worked well for me, but cooking times may vary.

Ingredients

12 slice
bread, torn into cubes
4 large
eggs
1 1/2 c
heavy whipping cream
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
brown sugar, divided
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 1/4 c
butter (1 stick + 4 tablespoons)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Whisk together the eggs, cream, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of the sugar.
2
Add in the bread cubes and combine with hands (you'll get icky. It's worth it).
3
Spray a 9 X 13 inch pan with cooking spray and spread the bread into the pan. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
4
Soften the stick of butter and mix with the cinnamon and 3/4 cups of the brown sugar. Spread over the top of the bread mixture.
5
Cut up the 3 tablespoons of butter (it's easier if the butter is cold) and dot the top of the casserole with butter.
6
Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Bake at 350 for around 30-45 minutes depending on your oven. Serve with maple syrup.
