Overnight Success!

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 Texas Toast French Toast

MILK MIXTURE. Begin by melting the butter. Add brown sugar and mix well. Pour this mixture into the bottom of a 9×13.

BREAD. 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.

EGG MIXTURE. 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.

BAKE. 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.

Recipe Tips + Storing info

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.

A filling in between the layers of french toast would be a welcome addition. A layer of Nutella or sliced strawberries or even cream cheese would be great additions to this overnight french toast.

STORE french toast in an air tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.

    This is one of our family’s favorite breakfast recipes. SO easy to put together at night and throw in the oven in the morning. And, it’s SO yummy!!

  2. Marilyn Cooling says:

    Can this recipe be cut in half

    1. LilLunaTeam says:

      It sure can! Just half the amount of all the ingredients and put everything in an 8×8 pan. Try baking it for 30 minutes instead of the 40-45 minutes that it suggests for the 9×13. If it’s not quite done after 30 minutes check on it in another 5 minutes or so until it looks done. Hope this helps!

    I served this French toast recipe buffet style on Christmas morning. I included bowls fresh blueberries and blackberries on the side. The fruit cut the sweet of the casserole. This will be my new Christmas morning breakfast for when we open presents.
