Overnight French Toast Casserole

One of my goals this year is to make more overnight breakfast casseroles. I am working on spending time planning out our meals for the week ahead of time so I don’t have to scramble and come up with something last minute.

My husband and I are having our weekly Bad A$$ meetings together to talk through what each week looks like and what we need to have ready. These meetings help keep us on the same page and make sure nothing is getting missed.

The 20 minutes we spend talking truly helps me feel like we have a plan for making sure we are getting things done and having time to relax.

This overnight French Toast Casserole takes a few minutes of prep and then it relaxes in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake it. I wish I would have made one of these for Christmas morning. It would have been perfect.

Ingredients

  • Sliced Bread
  • Eggs
  • Cream Cheese
  • Milk
  • Maple Syrup
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla Extract

Equipment Needed

Large Mixing Bowl – We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.

Aluminum Foil

Heat resistant potholders – A couple of years ago we had a fire scare when we didn’t realize we had turned a burner on and a cloth potholder caught fire. Thankfully we walked by the kitchen and saw the smoke and were able to get it out ourselves. Since then we have only used these heat-resistant potholders.

Recipe Tips

You can serve with homemade whipped cream or for the holidays try this Eggnog Whipped Cream.

If you have any leftovers store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Microwave for 30-45 seconds to reheat.

If you don’t want to wait overnight for this French Toast Casserole you can refrigerate it for 4-6 hours before baking. You want to give time for the custard mixture to soak into the bread.

We use Hawaiian bread, brioche bread, french bread, or leftover sandwich bread most of the time to make this French Toast Bake. Some days I toss in the random slices of a few different types of bread so they get used.
