We’ve had some busy days on the home front, lots of friends and family visiting. Everyone wants to come up and play in the snow.
This recipe is one of those wonderful casseroles you can mix up the night before and then just pop it in the oven for a warm, delicious breakfast. I’ve made it twice in the past few weeks and every time it was enjoyed by all.
French Toast Casserole
10 cups of French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes.
3 cups milk
4 tsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
¾ tsp salt (optional)
2 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Place the bread cubes in a greased 13×9 inch-baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour over the bread.
Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Remove the casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Dot with the butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top.
Cover and bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for five minutes and serve. Wonderful served with maple syrup.
Serves 8-12 depending on appetites.
