French Toast Casserole

French Toast Casserole

Ready in 45 minutes

Great for Brunch

"I used a half a loaf of Texas Toast cut into pieces per recipe and I tripled it for my group! I also poured the sugar mixture on as evenly as I could and then mixed it in with the bread so that it all was lightly covered. I also needed to cook it for 50 minutes because I made so much. I have a gang that shows up for the holidays and they loved it so much at Thanksgiving I'm making it again at Christmas! "

I used this as a base for my casserole. I loved the simplicity of this recipe which left room for me to customize it a little. Thanks for sharing!

Mine is in the oven right now and I can tell it's too dry! I think the soggy issues as well as my too dry issue stems from a lack of detail in the posted recipe concerning how to sort the bread in the pan. Is it supposed to be one layer of bread to cover the bottom of the pan or shove all of the bread in, overlapping the slices?

Took longer than 30 minutes at 325 to cook through and not be soggy. Once it was cooked tho it tasted great with a bit of powdered sugar sprinkled on top. I also used honey instead on corn syrup.

It was more like bread pudding than French toast. It was delicious though!
