Overnight French Toast Bake

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. 😀

  1. 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!

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Wanting to make this but without Texas Toast. Will it still turn out ok woth nornal bread? Or do you have another recommendation? I live in Thailand and Texas Toast is not a thing here ????

    1. I am sure it will. I would use a thick bread, if you could. I haven’t tried with other bread, so personally not sure how much it would change. Sorry, you don’t have Texas toast, but how fun to be in Thailand!! Whatever bread you have similar to Texas toast is what I would use. I wish I knew what kinds you have there.

  6. In am a little confused by the sugar too. I used a full cup of brown sugar with the butter, but then you call for a tablespoon and teaspoon sugar. Is that brown sugar or white sugar? I sprinkled brown sugar & cinnamon on my layers. I’m not sure what the tablespoon and teaspoon is all about and if that means brown sugar or regular sugar it gets kind of foggy

  7. This was a huge hit in our house! The only tweak I made to the recipe is that I used pumpkin pie spice instead of just using cinnamon….that made it just that much more amazing!! This recipe is a keeper.

  8. Could you tell me if you use frozen Texas toast or thaw ahead time. I really don’t like soggy breakfast casseroles, so trying to avoid that. Thank you.
