Overnight French Toast

I love French Toast.  It is by far one of my top 3 most favorite breakfast dishes.  This particular recipe is a lot easier then regular French Toast, but just as delicious.  I like to use this recipe when you know you have company coming over, or if you don't know you have company that is going to end up spending the night.  Most of the ingredients you will already have in your house, so it works out perfectly.  You just prepare it the night before, let it sit in the fridge, and then bake it up in the morning.

1 Loaf of thick sliced Bread sliced into 8 pieces (I use French Bread)
8 Eggs
3 Cups of Milk
1 Tbls. Brown Sugar
3/4 tsp. Salt
1 Tbls. Vanilla
2 Tbls. cold-semi cold Butter
1 Tbls. Powdered Sugar
1 Tbls. Cinnamon

Generously grease a 9x13 baking dish.
Place Bread in the baking dish.
Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl until completely blended.
Pour mixture over Bread.
Cut butter into small chunks and sprinkle over Bread.
Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 6 hours.
Bake uncovered in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
Serve with Syrup, Powder Sugar, and Fruit if you want.


  1. This sounds so yummy! I like that you prepare it the night before so you can just wake up and cook it!

  2. Try my variation on overnight french toast casserole!

    I made it with banana bread but I've since tried it with pumpkin bread which is also luscious.
