This is one of those wonderful "make ahead" breakfasts. You can put it together the night before, and into the fridge until morning, if you like, I just left it there an hour. Your family can wake up to the aroma of cinnamon, vanilla and warm maple syrup...all in one magical breakfast casserole!

How to Make Baked French Toast Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease a 9X13" baking pan with butter.
  2. Tear bread into chunks or cut into cubes; evenly lay out in prepared pan.
  3. Mix eggs, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg together. Pour over bread.
  4. Refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.
  5. In morning, preheat oven to 350'F. Prepare topping.
  6. Melt butter and cook with brown sugar and syrup or honey until just boiling. (If you add the pecans, this will be a wonderful praline topping.) Pour over bread mixture.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes for a soft, moist texture; and 50-60 minutes for a firmer, less moist one. If top starts to get too brown, cover loosely with aluminum foil. Serve immediately.
