Overnight French Toast Casserole Recipe

french toast casserole1 - Overnight French Toast Casserole Recipe

We just made this delicious overnight french toast casserole recipe the other day for “brinner” (breakfast for dinner) and I almost forgot how good it was. The entire family loved it! 🙂

Now I recommend letting it sit overnight, but I just didn’t plan that ahead (that is why you should always have a menu plan). You can easily make this recipe without it sitting overnight – just decrease the milk by 50%. It still tastes great but probably not as delicious as letting it sit overnight. 🙂

Either way, you can still have delicious french toast casserole.  Now if want it to taste even more amazing – drizzle homemade pancake syrup on top and then sprinkle powdered sugar.  YUM!

Ingredients you need:

  • 1/2 loaf of bread (about 10 slices plus one heel) cut into chunks -You could use old stale bread. You could also use different types of bread for different flavors.
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 Tablespoons of Sugar (divided in half)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

How to make Overnight French Toast Casserole:

  1. Spray bottom of pan with cooking spray or coat with melted butter. Cut bread into chunks and spread evenly in a 9×13 pan.
  2. Mix together eggs, milk, 2 Tablespoons of sugar, salt, and vanilla. Pour over bread. Mix to coat (feel free to get your hand dirty). 😉
  3. In a small separate bowl mix together 2 Tablespoons of sugar and 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture over the entire pan until it is gone.
  4. If wanting to eat now: Cover and place in fridge over night. (you could cook immediately, but it is much better if you let it sit over night) The next morning cook in 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until golden brown.
  5. If wanting to freeze: Cover with foil and freeze. When you are ready, thaw overnight in fridge. Cook in 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until golden brown.

Optional ideas:

If you are afraid it may dry out, place a few tabs of butter on top when you bake it. When serving I have drizzled with syrup right before serving, or I have sprinkled with with powdered sugar. Either way is fabulous!

Money saving tip for this French Toast Casserole:

Check your local grocery store for “reduced for quick sale” bread.  It is usually 50% or 75% off which means you can save a lot of money. Any kind of bread is perfect for this recipe. Just make sure you have enough to cover the bottom of a pan. I’ve used sour dough bread before and it was amazing!
