French toast Casserole

Mothers day was a success with this weekends sweet treats! I asked my mother what she would like for her breakfast and she said French toast which me and my little brother both though that wasn't exciting enough for a mothers day spread so we decided on french toast casserole and OH MY GOD was it amazing! We brought syrup to put on it but it was not necessary by any means. Its was sweet with the perfect crisp on the top!

It was very similar to my apple pie cake I make. It was a huge success with breakfast. We also had the basic eggs, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit, and mimosas. It was delicious! Recipe from

1 loaf day old french bread (really you can use any old bread)
8 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cups sugar
2 tsp cinnamon, divided
2 tbsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with Pam.
Tear up the bread into small chunks and place into the baking dish. In a separate bowl mix the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla, and half the cinnamon (We LOVE cinnamon so we used more like 1 tablespoon) and salt. When the wet ingredients are well blended together, pour over the bread mix in the dish. I like to stir it around to make sure all the bread has the egg sauce on it. The next part is a little more tedious. Cut up the butter into small chunks and place into a small bowl. Then add the brown sugar and flour to the butter along with the remaining cinnamon and salt. Mix together until a crumbly mix is formed. 

You may need to use a fork and knife and continue to cut the butter up into chunks while mixing (you don't want any large chunks of butter).

When you are satisfied with your crumb topping, evenly pour it over the casserole. Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hours until edges are brown and top is nice and crisp. This will soon be a family favorite! I promise! Enjoy!
