French Toast Breakfast Casserole


For the casserole:

  • 1 loaf stale bread (I used French Bread), tore into pieces – I used 9 cups of bread
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla

For the topping:

  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick cold butter, cubed


The night before:

  • Grease a 9x13 pan.
  • Place the bread pieces into the pan.
  • Mix together eggs, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla. Pour on top of the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt. Add the butter and press together with a fork until it comes together. Store in frig for tomorrow.

The day of:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spread the topping on top of the bread.
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on how firm you like your French toast.
  • Serve warm. Can top with maple syrup – if you want – but I find that too sweet!
