Baked French Toast

We have the best of intentions when we pick up the “grab and go” rotisserie chicken meal from Sprouts that comes with a couple of sides and a loaf of French bread but it never fails, we somehow don’t get around to eating the bread.  We end up with a loaf of stale bread on the counter – apparently a common theme in our house since I’ve already written about this before.  To make the best of it, Baked French Toast is a great option.

This is what we made for breakfast this morning so thought I’d share as it was a big hit with the fam and my guy who hates eggs loved this!

Prep Time:  10 min.

Bake Time:  45 min.

Baked French Toast

  • 7 Large Eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups Whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup White Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 loaf of dry French Bread, cut with serrated knife and cubed

Cinnamon Streusel

  • 1/2 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 cup Pecans or Walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 1/4 tsp. Cardamom
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • Maple Syrup
  • Sliced strawberries, blueberries or bananas for garnish

Preheat oven to 375.  Spray non-stick spray to evenly coat a 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Whisk together eggs, milk, sugars and vanilla in a bowl.  Cut up bread into cubes and place in greased dish.  Pour egg mixture over top of cubed bread.  Using a large spoon, stir to evenly coat bread with egg mixture. Set aside.

Assemble streusel by combining oats, nuts, flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom in a small bowl.  Add in melted butter and stir.  Pour evenly over bread mixture.  Bake for approximately 45 minutes.  The mixture will puff up during baking.

Remove from oven and cut into squares.  Serve warm with a touch of maple syrup and sliced fresh fruit such as strawberries, blueberries or bananas.
