French Toast Casserole – A Beautiful Mess


This French toast casserole has it all. The top is crunchy and slightly crunchy while the middle is almost creamy like bread pudding with flavors of French toast (cinnamon, egg yolk and milk). I personally love French toast made with croissants, which is exactly what this recipe calls for.

This would be an excellent breakfast option for a holiday brunch or when you have guests over overnight as it can be thrown together quickly and then you can make coffee and chat while it bakes. But this can be done at any time of the year.

Bread cubes. I cut off the tops of the croissants for a nice presentation, but this is not necessary, just an option. You can simply cut all the bread into cubes if you like.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, sugar, and cinnamon. Add the bread pieces and stir until all the pieces are well coated.

Grease or butter an 8×11 pan or similar sized skillet. Add the mixture to the prepared pan.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes at 350°F (177°C). Then remove the aluminum foil and bake for another 20 minutes. Total baking time is 40 minutes.

Allow to cool before cutting. Sprinkle a little powdered sugar before serving.

Tips and alternatives

  • You can certainly use breads other than croissants if you like. Sourdough or French bread would be great for this recipe as well.
  • If your bread is very soft and fresh, lightly toast it or cube it and let it rest overnight before preparing it. Your bread should be a bit stale because it will absorb the egg/milk mixture better if it’s on the dry side.
