Ingredients for French Toast Casserole
This baked french toast casserole doesn’t require many ingredients making it perfect for an easy meal. Plus, stale bread works well for this recipe if you have some around. You will need:
- vanilla extract
- maple syrup (for serving)
How to Make French Toast Casserole
The first step is to cut up enough bread to fill your greased 9 x 13 pan. If you are using regular sliced bread it would probably be 8-12 slices. If you have any leftover rolls or bread that is going to be stale soon this is the perfect way to use it up!
Then, in a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir well. Then, pour over the bread and toss it around to make sure all of the bread is coated.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes, until eggs are set and the casserole is golden brown. Serve the casserole warm straight from the oven with maple syrup. If not serving immediately, let cool and then cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
