Baked French Toast Casserole
At the end of our weekend we had leftover eggs, milk, and bread, so I made a one-pan baked french toast casserole. It was a hit and enabled us to use up our leftovers minus a ton of dishes. We served it up with greek yogurt and leftover berries.
I haven't made the recipe for the site, but here it is for you to recreate:
2 sticks butter (use wax paper to grease dish)
1 day-old loaf of bread
3 cups milk
1 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- Grease a large casserole dish with butter. Slice bread into 1 inch pieces. Place inside dish.
- In a large bowl, beat eggs. Beat in milk, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and 1 stick melted butter. (Beat butter in fast so it doesn't scramble eggs!)
- Pour liquid mixture over bread. Poke holes in bread using a fork and make sure each side of every piece of bread is soaked in the mixture. Cut other stick of butter into 8 pieces. Tot top of bread with the pieces of butter.
- Bake in a 375°F oven for 45 minutes. Serve with warm maple syrup.
