The Best French Toast Casserole

Christmas morning we were planning on making cinnamon rolls for breakfast, which is our annual tradition. However, Derek made these gingerbread cookies on Christmas Eve, using up more flour than we anticipated, and there wound up not being enough left to make cinnamon rolls Christmas morning, and neither of us had any desire to go to the store late Christmas Eve, so we went for this french toast casserole instead.

We had never made one before, but this french toast casserole recipe was super easy, and came together in no time at all! It was the right balance between simple ingredients that you already have on hand, not very labor intensive, and still super delicious. You could take this up a notch too, by adding fresh fruit, whipped cream, or whatever your family might like for toppings. 

1 Loaf of Bread
8 Eggs
2 1/2 cups Milk
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Sugar 
1/4 cup Butter

Preheat your oven to 350ยบ. While your oven is warming up, whisk your eggs, milk, and cinnamon together. Cube your bread into 1 inch pieces. Toss your bread cubes in with your egg mixture, and then pour into a greased 9x13 casserole dish. 

Pulse the topping ingredients together in a food processor until it resembles a coarse pea-size consistency, and then sprinkle over the top of your casserole. 

Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes, or until set. Serve with fresh fruit, berries, whipped cream, syrup, etc...
