The words, “French Toast” and “Casserole” aren’t two words you would typically put together in a sentence, much less in your mouth. But who would have thought that they’d go together so perfectly in a dish? Now, the sweet and spicy, warm goodness of French Toast mingles deliciously with the satisfying comfort of a homemade casserole, to create a surprisingly addictive flavor that keeps you coming back for more.
Good with a cup of steaming hot coffee, paired with your favorite breakfast food, or drizzled with maple syrup, this dessert is as good a compliment to any meal, as it is a standalone crowd favorite. Simple, elegant, and easy to prepare, this French Toast Casserole is both affordable and memorable. So, break out your Pyrex baking pan, because instead of “either/or, ” you can now have “both/and” on your plate.
1 Loaf of Pepperidge Farm Swirl BreadI used the Chocolate Banana Loaf.
2 Cups Milk
1 Cup Coffee Creamer (I used French Vanilla, but any of your choice)
*Optional 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
*Serve with whipped topping and pancake syrup
- First cube your loaf bread. (Just a quick tip, I find it much easier to cut the bread using scissors than a knife.) I LOVE my Kitchen Shears!
- Once the bread is cubed place it in a 9×13 baking dish, sprinkle in your chocolate chips if you choose to use them (or nuts, or raisins!)
- Crack six eggs and mix them in a bowl, add in the 2 cups milk and one cup coffee creamer.
- Pour liquid mixture over bread in the casserole dish evenly. Gently press down bread so the mixture gets into the cubed bread.
- Place covered in the refrigerator for at least an hour (you can totally leave it over night if you would like.
- Preheat your over to 350 degrees.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes. Serve while it’s warm with whipped topping and syrup. Yum!
