French Toast Casserole

I love going out with my family for breakfast after church, but sometimes there is just not enough time or money (or energy for dealing with the kids waiting for food). Breakfast is a great time to enjoy sitting together as a family and this recipe gets prepped the night before so no one is stuck over the stove. French toast casserole is also a great addition to a shower or breakfast meeting.

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 loaf bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 T vanilla
  • powdered sugar
  • ground cinnamon

  1. Melt butter and add brown sugar. Stir.
  2. Pour butter mixture into a 9 x 13 pan and spread.
  3. Beat eggs, milk, and vanilla.
  4. Place one layer of bread. (if this is for company or a party, you can cut off the crusts)
  5. Spoon 1/2 of egg mixture on top of bread.
  6. Sprinkle a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon.
  7. Add second layer of bread.
  8. Spoon egg mixture.
  9. Cover and chill overnight.
  10. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40-45 minutes.

Cutting off the crust before just makes it easier when dealing with the kids
    Difficulty: Easy
    Time: 15 minute prep; MUST soak overnight; baking time 45 minutes
