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?

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

Mix:

1 cup French vanilla coffee creamer (liquid)

1/3- 1/2 cup milk

6 eggs

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.
