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

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.

  • 1 (10oz)loaf of long French bread
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 4 tsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine

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.
