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!
