French Toast Casserole

Expecting a crowd for the holidays? This casserole is filling, delicious, and cost effective. It disappeared so fast at my house, I didn’t even have the chance to take a picture!

1 loaf French bread, cut into cubes
8 eggs, beaten
3 cups milk
4 tsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
¾ tsp salt

Topping:
2 T butter
3 T brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Maple syrup (optional)

Spread bread cubes in a greased 9x13 baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Pour evenly over bread; cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Remove from refrigerator 20-30 minutes before baking. Dot with butter. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over bread.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Drizzle with maple syrup if desired.
