Directions

  1. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  2. Combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, 1/2 cup whole milk, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved and syrup is smooth, about 5 minutes. Pour syrup into the prepared casserole dish.
  3. Arrange bread slices atop the syrup layer in the casserole dish.
  4. Whisk 2 1/2 cups milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a bowl; pour milk mixture over bread. Cover casserole dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove plastic wrap from casserole dish.
  6. Mix white sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl; sprinkle mixture over casserole. Cover casserole with aluminum foil.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and continue baking until casserole is cooked through and eggs are set, 25 to 30 minutes. The casserole will be syrupy, but should thicken as it cools.
  8. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I was hesitant to try this is as it had not yet been reviewed. The ingredients are ones everyone has on hand and its easy to prepare. The bread is the key and needs to be worked in to fit. This was the perfect consistency and had just a touch of sweetness. 10 mins to prep and exactly 45 minutes cooking time. Excellent recipe.

I have tried several french toast casseroles on this site and they were always too sweet for our taste. Well I finally struck gold on this one.Did not change a thing either. Absolutely perfect! This will go into my repetoire for a make ahead company worthy breakfast casserole. Thanks so much for sharing.

I prepare this dish for our office staff according to recipe and it was perfect. One thing that I did in the morning after taking it out of the fridge was to let it stand at room temperature for about an hour before starting the baking process. I will definitely do it again.
