HOW TO MAKE FRENCH TOAST OVERNIGHT

It doesn’t get any easier to make a warm French toast casserole when you’re craving a classic French toast without the work. You don’t even need maple syrup to serve it with…it has its own!

Simple French toast prepared in minimal steps:

  • Make your own syrup with butter and brown sugar. You can do this on the stove or in the microwave — whatever is easiest for you.
  • Pour into a baking dish. I use a 9″ x 13″ baking dish (22 cm x 33 cm).
  • Prepare a simple egg wash with eggs and milk. You could also use half and half (half whole milk and half heavy/thickened cream).
  • Place bread in a single layer over the syrup in the dish. There’s no need to cube your bread if you don’t wish too. Just place the slices in and arrange them so they fit.
  • Pour half of the egg wash over bread and top with a dusting of brown sugar/cinnamon.
  • Layer remaining bread over the top and pour over more egg wash.

CAN YOU SOAK FRENCH TOAST OVERNIGHT?

ABSOLUTELY!

Lightly press bread into the egg wash to ensure every slice is evenly soaked in the custard egg wash. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. (If you don’t have time, you can refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes to soak up the custard mixture before baking.)

When ready to bake, take the dish out of the refrigerator 20 minutes before baking to get the chill out.

HOW TO BAKE FRENCH TOAST CASSEROLE

When ready to bake, take the dish out of the refrigerator at least 20 minutes before baking if it has been in overnight to get the chill out. Bake for 45 minutes and prepare to have your mind blown!

Top with icing sugar or powdered sugar and serve with the syrup from the base of the dish!
