The best part in making this delicious breakfast is that it is prepared in advance. By the time you bake it the next day it is moist and yummy!
Total Time: 30 min. prep and 45 min. bake
Grease 2 9x13 inch baking pans. In a large bowl, combine eggs, half and half or milk, sugar, nutmeg, vanilla and rum extract; beat until well blended. Arrange bread slices in greased baking pans. Pour egg mixture over bread in pans. Lift and move bread slices until all egg mixutre is absorbed.
Cover with foil; refrigerate overnight or freeze up to one week. Heat oven to 500 degrees F. Remove bread slices from refrigerator or freezer (do not thaw); remove foil. Bake 1 pan at 500 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Repeat with second pan. Makes 24 slices.
TIP: If both pans are baked at the same time, switch pans in oven halfway through baking time.

I am looking for a recipe for overnite French toast casserole/bake. It uses vanilla liquid coffee creamer, day old bread and half and half. Those are the only contents I can remember. It is absolutely delicious. I have searched and searched and have been unable to locate the exact recipe I misplaced. Can anyone help?

Sorry! I tried to Google (Google!), but couldn't find... you may just have to improvise & write it down as you go!! (I would add chopped walnuts!)
You might try "googleing" the recipe. I did and it gave me several different recipes. Hope you find the one you are looking for there.
Here is one in case you haven't already found one:
Baked French Toast
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
1 cup French vanilla coffee creamer (liquid)
1/3- 1/2 cup milk
3 Tbsp. sugar.
1 tsp. vanilla
If too thick add more milk , if too thin, add eggs or creamer
Sprinkle with cinnamon
Dip 1 inch slices of day old french bread and set aside. Generously butter jelly roll pan. Heat in oven 1 minute; remove from oven. Arranged dipped bread in hot pan drizzle any remaining mixture over bread. Bake 5-8 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown; turn bread. Bake 2-4 minutes longer or until golden brown. Then turn the oven to broil and broil each side for about a minute each. Add your favorite toppings (whipped cream and strawberries below). I actually like the bread all by itself, too.
I would like a make ahead (freezer friendly) recipe for a Breakfast Casserole. I don't want to do the typical egg type strata with cheese and eggs.
I am wondering if there is a casserole type dish that is reminiscent of French Toast or Pancakes. The more servings the better. Thanks.

Grease a 9x13 inch cake pan. Slice the French bread 1 inch thick and layer in pan. Mix thoroughly the eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Pour over the bread mixture (bread will float to top). Dot bread with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Bake in oven at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes, until puffy and lightly browned. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with butter and flavored syrups.
Easy breakfast to make during the busy holidays or when company stays overnight.
