French Toast Casserole

Need a yummy dish for Christmas morning? I love this recipe because it's super easy and not to mention, wicked delicious. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. French Toast Casserole (12 servings)

1 loaf whole wheat bread cut into 1 inch cubes (10 cups)
8 eggs
3 cups milk
4 tsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter (cubed)
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
Maple syrup

-Place bread cubes in a greased 13x9x2 baking dish
-In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
-Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before baking. Dot with butter.
-Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top.
-Cover and bake for 45-50 minutes at 350*F or until knife inserted near middle comes out clean.
-Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with syrup.

The best part about this recipe is that you can prepare it the night before and pop it in the oven while you open presents Christmas morning. That way, you're not missing out on all the excitement.
Uh Oh...belly's a-grumbling...


  1. We love a mean French toast. Make-ahead sounds perfect...especially since my kids are up at "o'dark-thirty" to open gifts. Yawn. Who can function? ;)

  2. Wow, so I guess I should be thankful that my kids don't even really understand christmas morning yet. At least we'll get to sleep til about 7...

  3. This looks delicious!! Will be trying for sure!

  4. Thanks is soooo yummy!

  5. Definitely making this for Christmas morning. Thanks Ash!
