Breakfast is a meal that many of us enjoy on the weekends but we don’t necessarily take the time to enjoy it during the week. When we wake up in the morning, we don’t typically give ourselves enough time to sit down and enjoy all of what this meal has to offer. After you discover this French toast casserole, however, that may just change.
This recipe is fantastic on so many different levels. It’s easy to make, and you don’t even need to make it in the morning if you want to enjoy it for breakfast. You can make it up the night before and then throw it together in the morning so you have plenty of time to enjoy it.
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 french loaf toast bread, cut into 1/2 inch slices
2 tablespoons melted butter, for drizzling
1/4 cup peacans (optional)
Melt 1/4 cup butter and mix with brown sugar in a bowl.
Spread the mixture all over the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.
Add your eggs into a large bowl with the milk, vanilla and powdered sugar. Blend it together.
Line your baking sheet with bread. It’s okay if it overlaps slightly.
Use a ladle to pour half the egg mixture over the bread so all of the pieces get coated.
Sprinkle half of your brown sugar over the bread.
Then add half of your pecans.
Drizzle half of the melted butter over top.
Add the second layer of bread and drizzle the remaining butter.
Use your ladle to pour the rest of the egg mixture.
Sprinkle on the remaining brown sugar and pecans.
Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and then cook for 45 minutes.
