This casserole is so delicious and so easy to make. A few weekends ago I made a french toast casserole for a brunch potluck at a friends house. It was delicious, but it was filled, like maxed out with butter and sugar of all sorts: white, brown and powdered. I figured there had to be a healthier way to make it so I tried it out. It got five stars from Al so it must have been good!
I didn’t really measure anything, I think it’s the type of thing that you just make to your liking, but here’s the general process. The instructions are for a small casserole so adjust if you’re making a larger one.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 loaf of bread, any kind, broken into small pieces
loads of cinnamon
a sprinkle of brown sugar (optional)
How’s that for a technical list of ingredients? Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the eggs and milk together in a large bowl. Add as much cinnamon as you’d like to the mixture. We really like cinnamon (and it has lots of health benefits) so I was pretty liberal with it.
Toss the pieces of bread in the egg mixture until all are coated well. Pour the entire bowl into a GREASED! casserole dish. I just dumped the whole thing, extra eggs and all. Lightly sprinkle brown sugar over the casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the bread is light brown and crispy. To serve sprinkle powdered sugar or maple syrup on it. Enjoy!
