Trish’s Dishes: Overnight French Toast

Trish

My sister always makes this recipe for Christmas day breakfast. It’s sooo good! You can make this, put it in the fridge and bake when ready. ¬†And we know everyone in the St. Louis area has the ingredients to make it judging by the empty shelves in the stores. Be safe and warm today!

 

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 (8 ounce) loaf crusty French bread, cut into bite-size pieces, or as needed
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, or as needed

 

  1. Grease a 9×12-inch baking dish.
  2. Stir 1 cup brown sugar and butter together in a saucepan over medium-low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves into butter, 2 to 4 minutes. Pour into prepared baking dish and spread a 1 1/2- to 2-inch layer of bread pieces over the top.
  3. Beat milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; pour milk mixture over bread into the baking dish and move bread as necessary to ensure all bread is absorbing liquid. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Remove and discard plastic wrap from baking dish and sprinkle remaining brown sugar over the top of the bread mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and bubbling, about 30 minutes.
