French Toast Casserole

I love breakfast foods. Breakfast has got to be my favorite meal. Next to cold, highly sugared, cereal I love French toast. A few years ago I was on a camp out with my church. Our bishop was in charge of making breakfast. He made this casserole in a dutch oven; it was so good! We had it later at a Christmas party as well. I enjoy it so much!

 
I had to take a picture in the pan because my family was already picking at it even though it was still so hot!
What you need:
1 Loaf of cinnamon swirl bread or Texas toast bread cut into cubes
6 Eggs beaten
3 c Milk
2 t Vanilla
2 t Cinnamon
1 c Fresh Raspberries or Blueberries optional
  • Place cubed bread into a greased 13x9 pan
  • Mix eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon and berries if you choose to use them
  • Pour over bread
  • Refrigerate covered overnight or at least one hour (Overnight is the best)
  • Uncover and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes
  • Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and serve with syrup

My husband liked this because it reminded him of bread pudding. I am going to put raspberries in next time and try to find a custard recipe to put on top. I think that would make it just like the bread pudding we love at Kneaders.

My family likes to have big breakfast instead of supper on Sunday nights. Going to make this tonight. I'm thinking of maybe adding some apple slices. YUMMMMMM!!!!!!
