Cooking Tips:

  • If you have the time bacon goes great with the casserole. Serve a couple of rashers with each serving of the oven baked French toast.
  • If you don’t have 6-8 hours to wait for the egg mix to soak in then you can encourage it by pushing down on bread. This will help the bread absorb the mix faster and should be ready not long after.
  • An overnight French toast casserole is great as you do almost all the work night before. If you have anything else to go with it see if you can prepare this so all you have to do is cook and serve.
  • Experiment with the topping, the topping in this recipe is very basic you can try something like a praline topping if you have the time to do it.

A different variation on this recipe is something like a slow cooker french toast casserole. This is very similar to this recipe but is instead cook over the course of 8 hours. The biggest difference between the two is the oven version will give you a crispier casserole and the slow cooker will give you a softer casserole.
