I wanted to share a French Toast Casserole recipe that my family had for breakfast! It’s COMPLETELY easy and TOTALLY delicious! :) This is the prefect recipe for that Saturday or Sunday morning when there’s nothing to do but get together as a family and have a delicious breakfast! ENJOY!
French Toast CasserolePrint Recipe
- firm white bread
- 1/3 c pecans, chopped
- 1/2 c packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon or to taste
- 8 large eggs
- 1 and 3/4 c almond milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- powdered sugar and maple syrup, for serving
Generously grease a 9x13 inch glass baking dish.
Slice the bread into twelve 1" slices, then cut each slice into 1" cubes.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped nuts.
Arrange half the bread in a single layer in the prepared dish, then sprinkle half the sugar mixture evenly over the top; add a second layer with the remaining bread and the sugar mixture.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs; add the milk and vanilla extract, whisking until well blended.
Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread, starting from the outer edge; with a spatula, gently press down on the bread to coat it with the egg mixture.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees; bake the casserole covered for 20 minutes, then remove the foil and continue baking until the casserole turns a light golden brown and looks slightly puffed, about 30 minutes more.
Serve the casserole warm with powdered sugar and maple syrup!
