Overnight French Toast Bake

If you could name your all time breakfast food, what would it be? If I was asked that question, I would have to say French Toast. Bread soaked in a rich gooey egg mixture and then cooked. YUM! However, sometimes when I am in a rush in the mornings, taking the time to make my favorite treat seems daunting.


Enter my fabulous hubby. While browsing Facebook one day, he found a recipe for an overnight french toast. I was intrigued to try this new recipe. I had planned on trying this recipe for Christmas morning. However, time just got away from me. So, I decided to give the recipe a try for New Year's morning.

Now, if you have ever tried to search for a recipe on Facebook, you know it can be impossible. So, enter my favorite place on the internet, Pinterest. I typed in what I wanted and there it was listed as the second recipe in the search box. SCORE. The original recipe can be found at Just A Pinch.

Now on to the recipe!!



Overnight French Toast Bake
Original Recipe by Just A Pinch

You will need:
1/2 c melted butter (1 stick)
1 c brown sugar
1 loaf Texas toast
4 eggs
1 1/2 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
Powered sugar for sprinkling

Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. Add brown sugar into melted butter. Stir until mixed well.

Spread mixture into the bottom of a 9X13 pan. Make sure to cover the entire bottom.

In another bowl, the eggs, milk and vanilla.

Layer a single layer of the toast in the pan over the brown sugar mixture. You may need to cut the bread
to get it to fit properly.

Pour half of the egg mixture on the bread.

Place another layer of bread in the pan. Pour the remaining egg mixture over this layer.

Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.

The next morning, preheat your to 350 degrees. Bake the french toast for 45 minutes. For the first 30 minutes, keep the pan covered. For the last 15 minutes, uncover the pan.

Once baking is complete, sprinkle powered sugar over the toast. Serve with your favorite syrup.

This was absolutely delicious. I will definitely be making this recipe again VERY soon. Also, it was nice not having to rush around to try and get breakfast on the table.

I hope you enjoy!
