This is a recipe I actually got from another cooking club I belong to, however I tweaked it to become my own. (Take a recipe, make it your own). What I love about this is that it is huge. I have made it at Christmas for 10, yet I make it for my 16 year old son and we stick it in the fridge all week and he eats it every morning before school. It reheats nicely. It's economical for a family and great tasting. I've had other french toast casseroles but this one was different due to the cream cheese. Take it and make it your own. You might even come up with some other things you want to add. I even think blueberries in it would be nice.

How to Make French Toast Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray a 13 x 9 glass baking dish with cooking spray. First, cut your french fread in half and cube. Place first half on bottom. Layer with cream cheese. Take the other half of french bread, cube it and place on top of cream cheese and first layer.
    Whisk all remaining ingredients in bowl. Play around with the sugar. We like ours a little sweeter. If you use 3/4 cup, it isn't quite as sweet so I use between 3/4 and 1 cup of sugar, but remember you will also be adding syrup at the end. After you have mixed together all ingredients, pour over the bread, making sure that you have covered every piece, pushing it down with spoon and if needed go to bottom and getting excess and bringing it back up to soak bread again. Then, it must go into fridge overnight. I make this before bed so it will be ready in a.m.
    Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until lightly browned. Sometimes mine has to go to more like an hour and I even have a convection oven so you just have to watch it. It also depends on how brown you like it. It is a really large casserole.
    Serve with real maple syrup and it's simply delicious or serve with other syrup. I think it would also be delicious to throw in a few blueberries although I've never tried it. I may try that next time in the Spring and use blueberry syrup for a change.

We’re not all lucky enough to have fields to grow fresh corn, but thankfully it’s abundant at the market.
