Indulge in the rich, comforting flavors of a classic breakfast favorite with this delightful French Toast Casserole recipe.
– 1 loaf of thick-cut French bread
– 6 large egg
– 2 cups of whole milk
– 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
– 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
– 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
– 1/2 cup of brown sugar
– 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, softened
– 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
– Optional toppings: fresh berries, powdered sugar, and whipped cream
Begin by slicing the French bread into thick, even pieces. Arrange them in a greased 9x13-inch baking dish, ensuring they overlap slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined.
Carefully pour the egg mixture over the arranged bread slices, ensuring each piece is thoroughly coated. Press down gently to help the bread absorb the liquid.
In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, softened butter, and maple syrup. Mix until it forms a crumbly texture.
Evenly sprinkle the streusel mixture over the bread and egg mixture, covering the entire surface.
Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate it overnight. This allows the flavors to meld together and ensures a perfect texture when baked.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Remove the casserole from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

Then, bake it in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the center is set.
Preheat and Bake
Allow the French Toast Casserole to cool slightly before serving. Top it with fresh berries, a dusting of powdered sugar, and a dollop of whipped cream for an extra special touch.
