French Toast Casserole

Today, I had 10 kids and 7 moms over for a brunch. It was our little Easer celebration before things get too crazy next week. We ate, we made little Easter Baskets out of recycled soda bottles (I will post pictures this weekend at some point), and we had an Easter Egg Hunt! It was a fun and delicious day! My main course was this delicious, inexpensive,  and very easy to make French Toast Casserole. I love casseroles and bakes that you prepare the night, it makes the mornings so much easier! Give this one a try, your family and friends will thank you for it!!  


French Toast Casserole


1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1 cup brown sugar
14 slices of white bread or Texas Toast bread
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar to sprinkle on top


Melt butter in microwave & add brown sugar, mix until combined.

Pour butter/sugar mix into bottom of a greased  9 x 13 pan and spread evenly.

 Beat eggs, milk, & vanilla until combined. 

 Cut the bread slices in half and lay a single layer of bread in pan over the butter/brown sugar mixture.

Spoon 1/2 of egg mixture evenly on top of the layer of bread.
  Add the second layer of bread on top o the other and spoon remaining egg mixture on top.

Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and cover & refrigerate overnight.

Remove the casserole from the fridge and let it sit for 30 minutes. Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and let it bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes or until bread is puffed and golden.
  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup if desired.

I prefer it without the syrup, this recipe is plenty sweet! Enjoy!
Trust me, it tastes even better than it looks!
