French toast casserole is an easier spin on the classic breakfast food that we all love. It’s easy to make and oh so good!
Six days a week, breakfast at our house is pretty much grab and go. You make it yourself and usually it’s while I’m working or in between phone calls.
But Sundays…. that’s the one day where we go all out. Our college-age daughters are both home on Sundays, and we try to slow down to spend as much time with them as we can. Breakfast is always on the table.
Sometimes we go all out with a big spread, other times we keep it rather simple. French Toast Casserole is the perfect mixture of the two – it’s easy to make & slide in the oven, but it gives you all those comfort food vibes.
And if we’re blessed enough to have company for breakfast (or brunch!), then it’s usually my go-to recipe because it’s so simple and always a hit.
French Toast Casserole
- 8 whole eggs
- 1 cup milk (whole or 2% works best)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 8 cups of bread cut in 1 inch cubes (day old bread is perfect for this!)
- Preheat the oven to 350.
- In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and syrup until well combined.
- Spray the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray, then arrange the bread cubes in a single layer.
- Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes.
- Use a spatula to push the bread down into the eggs so you can make sure that every cube of bread is soaked.
- Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
- Let the casserole rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
- Drizzle with more maple syrup and enjoy!
Once you’ve had this casserole you may never go back to traditional French toast. It’s so much easier – and it only takes about 5 minutes to prep and the oven does the rest.
