French Toast Casserole

Author Chef Tiffany Blackmon

Equipment

  • 13 x 9-inch casserole dish

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • ¾ loaf French bread torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups half and half
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon this is adjusted from the book to my taste
  • ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar

Instructions

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup; microwave on HIGH for 45 to 55 seconds or until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved (or melt in a saucepan over medium-low heat).  Stir well and pour into a baking dish.  Arrange bread pieces evenly over butter mixture.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs until blended.  Whisk in cream and vanilla.  Pour evenly over bread, pressing bread down until moistened.
  • In a small bowl, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon.  Sprinkle evenly over casserole.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Uncover baking dish.  Bake for 30-40 minutes or until set and golden brown.  Sift confectioners’ sugar over top.  Serve immediately.

While I love a good, savory meal, every once in a while it is nice to bake something and cure that sweet tooth that likes to come out on occasion. When I use this French Toast Casserole Recipe, I always like to add some type of berry on top. Not only do the berries make a beautiful garnish, they taste amazing. A good bite full of the french toast casserole and a nice strawberry or blueberry creates the most fabulous blend of flavors! Treat yourself (and your loved ones) this Valentine’s Day by making this delicious French Toast Casserole. Who doesn’t love a breakfast that feels and tastes like dessert?
