Overnight French Toast Casserole

February 21, 2021

When I moved to Philadelphia over 20 years ago, I immediately fell in love with Sid Mark's "Sunday with Sinatra" radio show. We love turning it on every Sunday morning while we eat breakfast together. I look forward to it every week. Frank Sinatra's music is so perfect for a relaxing Sunday morning.

Last night I put together one of our favorite breakfasts - French Toast Casserole! It is so delicious and so easy to prepare. Plus you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen already. I love how you can prepare it the night before and then just pop it in the oven the next morning for an amazing breakfast! This casserole makes the house smell so good! An easy breakfast and Sinatra's voice just makes it a perfect start to our Sunday. I hope that you all are having a great day!

Overnight French Toast Casserole


4 tbsp butter, melted

One loaf of bread, cubed and divided in half

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

6 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cups of milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Melt the butter into a 9" by 13" casserole dish and make sure that the bottom and sides are covered with butter. Or you could use cooking spray instead.

  2. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.

  3. Add a layer of half of the cubed bread.

  4. Sprinkle on half of the brown sugar mixture over top of the bread.

  5. Add the rest of the bread into another layer.

  6. Sprinkle the rest of the brown sugar mixture evenly over the top of the casserole.

  7. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla until it is combined well.

  8. Pour the egg mixture evenly over top of the casserole.

  9. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate it overnight.

  10. When you would like to bake it, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  11. Take the plastic wrap off and bake in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes, until nice and golden. (If it starts to brown too quickly, just cover lightly with foil.)

  12. Serve warm with maple syrup or powdered sugar.

Please note that this casserole does not have to be made the night before. You can also prepare it and bake it on the same day.

This easy French Toast Casserole is the best! Perfect for holidays! And it is not just for the weekends! I like to make it at the beginning of the week so that my boys have and easy and hot breakfast all weeklong!
