Cinnamon French Toast Casserole is the breakfast casserole of your dreams! Just put it in the oven for less than an hour and you’ll have a moist, rich casserole to start off your morning on a sweet note! Eating Cinnamon French Toast Casserole is like having dessert for breakfast, and it’s totally socially acceptable.


For the casserole: • 1 pound loaf sourdough or french bread • 8 large eggs • 2 cups of 2% or whole milk • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream • 1/2 cup granulated sugar • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon For the topping: • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed • 2 teaspoon cinnamon • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces


Step 1

Lightly grease a casserole dish or spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 2

Slice the bread into 1-2 inch cubes, and distribute it along the bottom of the dish.

Step 3

In a mixing bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the eggs with milk, cream, sugars, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Step 4

Pour the egg mixture over the bread in the casserole dish. It is important that all of the bread is wet.

Step 5

Cover the casserole dish and allow it to rest in the fridge for at least 6 hours or, ideally, overnight.

Step 6

To make the topping, combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in the butter until a crumble begins to form. This should resemble a streusel.

Step 7

Once you are ready to bake the casserole, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 8

Evenly distribute the streusel topping over the casserole.

Step 9

If you desire a moist consistency, bake for 45 minutes. If you desire a firm casserole with less moisture, bake for 1 hour.

Step 10

Remove the casserole from the oven and serve warm.
