French Toast Casserole

This is my "go-to" recipe for brunch. It's super easy with only a few ingredients and steps, but others will think that you spent hours in the kitchen preparing this dish. Enjoy!

serves 5-7


1 stick butter, melted
1 cup heaping brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 loaf french bread sliced into 3/4" thickness
5 eggs
1 1/3 cup milk
powdered sugar (optional)
syrup (optional)


Melt the butter in a microwavable dish. Once melted, add in the brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour this mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish and spread out evenly.

Snugly place the sliced french bread into the casserole dish.

Beat the eggs and add in the milk. Pour this mixture evenly over the bread.

Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top, cover and place in the fridge for 2-24 hours.

When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Sprinkle powdered sugar on top or don't. Smother it with syrup or don't. You really can't go wrong with this recipe! Oh, and I wish I had a photo of the final project, but it gets gobbled up everytime before I get a chance!

  1. Oh my gosh! Yum! I'm sure the butter mixture on the bottom of the dish really takes this over the top - I can see why you never have enough of the finished product to photograph! We love french toast - I should really try this. Thanks so much for sharing! You have such a pretty blog.
