French Toast Casserole

Posted by: Andee / Category: , ,


I have never made homemade french toast before. Can you believe that? It's always been the store-bought-nuke-in-the-microwave type. I found this french toast casserole on one of the many food websites I frequent and I decided to give it a try. I am glad I did!!

First steps is to line your dish with a lot of butter. In the same casserole dish, mix three scrambled eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon (or any other spices you might enjoy... I hear banana extract is a nice touch, or maybe chocolate chips!) and then stir lightly so you don't really mess up the butter coating on the bottom. Add the bread of your choice... all I had was plain old white sandwich bread, it would have been a LOT better with cinnamon bread or maybe even left over pound cake! Let everything sit in the fridge for a few hours (some say overnight) and then pop it into the oven at 350 degrees until the the top of the toast is a golden brown (about 38 minutes in my case).


I added a few more pats of butter, a dusting of powdered sugar, and a light drizzle of maple syrup. Give this one a shot! It's great!

    Um, I had no idea they sold french toast in stores. Is it like frozen waffles?

    Buckathina,

    Me too, me too!

    Craig,

    Yep, just like frozen waffles. I would also buy the french toast and sausage frozen breakfast back when I actually ate meat. Now the french toast frozen area is taken over by french toast sticks and cream cheese filled french toast. Not sure how I feel about that.

    Mmmmm, french toast casserole.
    Incidentally I am a French toast junkie and I feel I can say definitely that the finest french toast is made of day-old challah. This may have something to do with the fact that I used to work the breakfast shift in a Kosher deli though. Matzo Brei still makes me all verklempt with nostalgia.
