Easy French Toast Casserole

by Tiffany in Recipes

French Toast CasseroleOn lazy weekend mornings, and when it’s crazy cold outside, I like to make french toast casserole. You can use just about any type of bread but I like to use bread that has gone past its prime and needs to be used up. This can be stale loaves, uneaten english muffins, the remains of the French bread from dinner, etc. This morning I made some using a large baguette we used for the previous night’s dinner. We had garlic bread with our quinoa, spinach ravioli and I had half of the loaf left. I cut it up into bite size chunks and added a few slices of uneaten sandwich bread (broken apart). It was delish as usual!

You can even make this dish the night before (minus the glaze topping) and keep it in the fridge until the next morning. This makes for very easy, and lazy mornings. Just make the glaze, pour it on and pop it in the oven.

French Toast Casserole

Leftover/stale bread
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

Cinnamon Sugar Glaze Topping

2 Tsp melted butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Fill a medium size casserole dish with the stale or leftover bread, cut into chunks. Whisk together the evaporated milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Pour on top of the bread and let it soak for an hour or overnight if you wish. Once it has had the chance to soak up the milk, pour the glaze on top and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Enjoy!
