Overnight French Toast Bake - this layered breakfast recipe has layers of Texas toast, cinnamon, sugar, brown sugar and eggs! YUM!

It’s no surprise we love breakfast recipes. I mean, we love them so much we have breakfast for dinner every Wednesday night. We usually do some variation of pancakes, waffles or French Toast because the kids love all of them. Usually, my husband makes dinner on Wednesdays, but last week, he had to work late, so I decided to try a new recipe.

I’m a huge fan of “breakfast bakes” and had seen this one that I’ve been wanting to try. I think it can be changed up really easily and will be a new favorite. For example, I’m thinking a layer of nutella or sliced strawberries would be great in between the two layers of bread next time we make it. This time, we really didn’t change too much from the recipe since I wanted to see how it turned out. Fortunately, it was a hit, which means we’ll be making it again… and soon. 🙂

I love the puffed up egg-y bread covered in cinnamon and sugar. Not sure how you can’t, especially when it’s drenched in syrup, lol!! If you love French Toast, then I suggest trying this recipe. It’s perfect for a special weekend or even for a holiday morning. 😀

I am the opposite when it comes to breakfast recipes! But I am so excited about this one! So trying this for my daughter this weekend (just need to grab bread!)

Cathy Trochelman

This would be perfect for a fun weekend breakfast, especially with company!

Joanie @ Zagleft

Breakfast for dinner is such a fun idea. We used to do it when my kids were little and they loved it. I might just have to start again with my husband and I. This french toast bake would be wonderful anytime!

    Lil' Luna

    We are ALL ABOUT breakfast for dinner – it’s just too good not to. 😉

Your recipes are always so good!

Michelle @ The Complete Savorist

French toast is my go-to breakfast food when I have time. This is a great overnight recipe, and would help my morning routine.

Heather | Heather Likes Food

These look dangerously yummy!

Michelle | A Dish of Daily Life

Looks like a winner to me, especially since you get it ready the night before! I love french toast but I don’t make it that often. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Lil' Luna

    French Toast is always a hit – right?! Thanks for stopping by!

Melanie | Melanie Makes

I absolutely love overnight french toast recipes and this one looks delicious!

Samantha

Bit confused on the last part of ingredients: brown sugar, cinnamon, 1 TB sugar + 1 teaspoon sugar. What do you mean? thank you.

    Lil' Luna

    Those are for sprinkling on top, so it’s how much you prefer. The sugar amount is one tablespoon plus one teaspoon. Hope that helps. Enjoy!!

This turned out great & disappeared quickly at our Easter Breakfast at Church. The instruction to spread the butter on the top of the bread after it’s in the dish was a bit ridiculous to me. I buttered the slices before putting them in the dish. Much easier and you get better coverage. Will make again.

    Lil' Luna

    I’m glad it was a hit at church! Thank you for letting me know 🙂

Amanda

Have you had atomic french toast? Because my wife concocted a brilliant twist to this recipe: Slice up two bananas and some strawberries and layer the slices between the bread layers. Then when the baking is done, put some more fruit on top plus chocolate syrup and whipped cream.

    Lil' Luna

    Sounds amazing! I’ll have to try that! Thanks for sharing that!
