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.

How to Make French Toast Casserole

Step-by-Step

  • 1Whisk together the eggs, cream, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of the sugar.
  • 2Add in the bread cubes and combine with hands (you'll get icky. It's worth it).
  • 3Spray a 9 X 13 inch pan with cooking spray and spread the bread into the pan. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
  • 4Soften 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.
  • 5Cut up the 3 tablespoons of butter (it's easier if the butter is cold) and dot the top of the casserole with butter.
  • 6Sprinkle 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.
