Overnight French Toast Casserole

So yesterday as I was pinning away on Pinterest b/c I am addicted lol!! I came across some breakfast casserole recipes, my family is big on breakfast. I can say it is def our favorite meal, so on the weekends we usually always do a yummy big breakfast.

I was looking for something different with not much fuss so that I didn't have to be at the stove all morning, I came across this french toast casserole recipe I tweaked it a little. End result YUMMMY!!! Kids loved it Brandon enjoyed it. It was a success so I shall share it with you all. The original recipe was from Taste of Home.  Enjoy -Candice-

**** I added cinnamon & nutmeg & a little extra vanilla to the egg mixture it gave it great flavor so you may want to do that I think it may have been to bland if I fallowed the recipe exactly

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 8 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups 2% milk
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Maple syrup, optional


  • Place bread cubes in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  • Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Dot with butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top.
  • Cover and bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with maple syrup if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
  • It took an hour in my oven
