Overnight French Toast – this delicious breakfast recipe has layers of Texas toast, cinnamon, sugar, brown sugar and eggs! It’s a great way to enjoy baked French Toast.
Baked French Toast
It’s no surprise we love breakfast recipes. I mean, we love them so much we have breakfast for dinner every Wednesday night (aka “brinner).
We usually do some variation of pancakes, waffles or French Toast because the kids love all of them. Today’s recipe is an Overnight French Toast that was simple and a little different from our classic French Toast Bake.
It has layers of Texas Toast, cinnamon, brown sugar, eggs and more – and a recipe that I think can be changed up really easily. 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!
How to make Overnight French Toast
This baked French toast is quite easy. Begin by melting the butter. Add brown sugar and mix well. Pour this mixture into the bottom of a 9×13.
You don’t have to cut off the crust of the bread, but you can if you’re going for a prettier look. Add a layer of Texas toast to the baking dish.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla. Pour half of egg mixture over the Texas toast and sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on top. Add another layer of Texas Toast. Spread a thin layer of butter over bread.
Top with the remaining egg mixture and top with your cinnamon and sugar mixture. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours before baking.When ready to bake, bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
Do you have to refrigerate overnight?
Refrigerating this baked french toast overnight makes sure everything gets soaked in well. If you don’t have the time for that we recommend refrigerating for at least 4 hours.
Can you add a filling in between the layers?
Yes, we are hoping to do this next time we make it, but we think a layer of Nutella or sliced strawberries or even cream cheese would be great additions to this overnight french toast.
This dish is great for a weekend or holiday breakfast, but it’s also great for a brunch! There are so many great dishes to go with it but here are some of our favorites:
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 great for so many occasions!
