The only thing better than French Toast is turning it into a soufflé. Make this dish for brunch or surprise your kids with this treat in place of the standard French Toast. A firm white bread produces the best texture in this make-ahead breakfast casserole.
With this French toast casserole, you skip the hassle of standing by the stove and pan-frying each individual slice of French toast.
Instead, you just throw everything into a dish and let the oven do the work! You can even assemble the casserole the night before and bake it the next morning.
You still get all the best parts of a slice of French toast, but with far less effort: soft and custardy middles, cinnamon-infused edges, plus an extra-crunchy toasted topping.
For this French toast casserole, you are going to need a fairly large loaf of bread – enough to make about 10 cups once cubed. Use any good-quality loaf, like a French loaf, sourdough, ciabatta, or challah. I actually really liked the sourdough bread because the slight sour taste helped balance out the sweetness of everything else.
Leave the crusts on the bread since this adds some good, crunchy texture to the casserole!
