French Toast Breakfast Casserole

Need a delicious brunch recipe? Or simply want to spoil your overnight guests? My friend fixed this for our first morning at her house…she prepared it the night before, slick!

Baked French Toast

  • 1 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1 inch slices
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/3 cups brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup

DIRECTIONS

  1. Butter a 9×13 inch baking dish. Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
  2. The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup; heat until bubbling. Pour over bread and egg mixture.
  3. Bake in preheated oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

  1. Mmm-hm! It is…and I’m finding out that there are several variations…there is one with cream cheese, that Jana says is even better, and one in one of my cookbooks that has apples! Might have to share that one!

    Bread and butter pudding sounds delicious! We have bread puddings here in the states too, one of my dh’s fave desserts!

  2. Me too! The most memorable french toast meal I’ve ever had was when camping with my bil’s family at Pike’s Peak. His dad made the BEST french toast ever on a campstove. YUM.
