French Toast Casserole

Here’s the recipe I used for the french toast casserole!

I didn’t have the one from home and the people who could get it to me were sleeping when I needed it so I found this one via Pinterest at ‘ Creme De La Crumb Blog ‘

Below is the recipe I got from her blog but be sure to check out her page, I’m pretty sure I’ll be trying a few more of her recipes πŸ˜‰


Ingredients :

10 slices texas toast-style white bread
2 cups milk
6 eggs
1Β½ teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Topping :

Β½ cup brown sugar
Β½ cup flour
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Β½ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter, chilled
Β½ cup chopped pecans (they add so much goodness in my opinion:D)



Directions :


Cut bread into 1 inch cubes and place in a greased 9×13 inch casserole dish.

Prepare the topping by combining brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and whisking to distribute ingredients well.
Cut butter into small cubes and add to dry ingredients.
Mash in with a fork or pastry cutter then stir in chopped pecans.
Cover and place in fridge.

In a medium bowl whisk together milk, eggs, vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon.
Pour over bread in the casserole dish and then cover and chill overnight.

Next morning preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle topping mix over the soaked bread and bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes until golden and bread is baked through.





My notes :

I made my casserole with normal, white bread from the store and since they are slightly slimmer pieces of bread I used more than ten, plus I wanted a large casserole so I was ok with making it bigger.

As a result of more bread then the recipe calls for it didn’t have enough liquid so mine got a little dry on top.
So mid way through the baking process I added around 3/4 cup of milk, pouring it around the most dry areas.

I let my casserole sit for 6 hours and then cooked it the same night since I wanted a shorter preparation time come the next morning and I almost like it better after it’s a day old πŸ˜‹

I like eating mine with syrup and strawberries, Mike goes for that combo plus bananas and a generous amount of whipped cream πŸ˜πŸ“πŸŒπŸ΄

Good luck and enjoy!

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
