Dump-and-Bake French Toast Casserole
"With very little prep work, you can stash a Dump-and-Bake French Toast Casserole in the refrigerator, let it sit overnight, and wake up to a deliciously satisfying breakfast! Perfect for an easy holiday brunch or a lazy Sunday morning, the cinnamon and brown sugar topping on this baked French toast sets it over the top! Is there anyone who doesn't love French Toast? As far as I can tell, it's a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Add a cinnamon and brown sugar streusel on top and bake it in a thick casserole, dust with powdered sugar, garnish with fresh spring berries, and drizzle with maple syrup?!?!?! Lawd, help me. There's just nothing better! The best news of all, though? I've managed to keep this about as simple as possible! There's no need to dip bread in an egg custard, and there's no need to stand over a griddle flipping individual slices before they burn. Instead, just pull the dish out of the oven in the morning, pop it in the oven, and bake it until your house smells AMAZING. Trust me...it's the best."
NotesCooking for a Smaller Family? As you can see here, I baked my French Toast Casserole for these photos in an 8-inch square dish. To do so, just cut the ingredients in half. Baking instructions remain the same.
