Cinnamon French Toast as a Casserole? You betcha! It’s perfect for overnight guests, brunch, or a potluck.
I’ve seen lots of versions of ‘French Toast Bakes’ or ‘French Toast Casseroles’, most didn’t look that good to me. But I needed something to take to a Christmas Brunch and really wanted to try making one. So, I did a little searching and saw a post from Mormon Mavens in the Kitchen. The picture looked similar to what I wanted to make. I noticed that they got their recipe from The Pioneer Woman. This is a slight adaptation from that recipe.
So, how was it? It was really really good. I took note from the Mormon Mavens to not use a standard white sandwich bread. So, I picked up a loaf of french bread from our local grocery store, Safeway. I used almost the entire loaf (less a few slices eaten while cutting into cubes). I was worried about it being soggy and/or eggy. It wasn’t either.
In both of the other posts, it was recommended to serve it with Maple Syrup. I actually prefer it without the syrup. I think if you want to serve it with syrup, the sugar needs to be reduced in the casserole since it was perfect without the syrup.
