Homemade French Toast Casserole
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 loaf Texas Toast or bread of choice (about 8 cups)
  • Cooking Spray, as needed
For the egg mixture:
  • 8 Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tbsp. Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Nutmeg
For the sugar-crust topping:
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • ½ cup cold Unsalted Butter, cut into small squares
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a large size casserole dish with cooking spray (9X13 should work perfectly).
  2. While the oven preheats, rip the bread into smaller pieces (about 1 inch each). I like ripping it instead of cutting to create more of a homemade texture and look.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine all sugar-crust topping ingredients and set aside. Cut butter into cubes and set back in the refrigerator until you're ready to assemble.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all ingredients for the egg mixture above.
  5. Add bread to the egg mixture and toss to combine.
  6. Pour soaked bread into a casserole dish greased with cooking spray. Top evenly with sugar-crust topping and sprinkle with butter cubes.
  7. Bake for 1 hour, or until the top is crusty and a knife comes out clean when checking the center.
