Overnight French Toast Breakfast Casserole

One of the things my husband and I love is having people over to our home! Overnight French Toast Breakfast Casserole is one of our favorite breakfasts to make when we have overnight guests. I love being able to prepare this casserole the night before and then pop it in the oven quickly in the morning. I first made this recipe years ago with and the ingredients required a ridiculous amount of butter and cream; the recipe made my stomach turn as I prepared it. Luckily the group of men my husband had coming for breakfast loved it, but I declared that in good conscience I could never make that recipe again. So, I played around with the ingredients and came up with our NEW favorite ‘a little lighter’ version of Overnight French Toast Breakfast Casserole. 

Whether it’s for your child’s sleepover breakfast, a brunch, for overnight guests, or even just for your family this is sure to be a recipe that we be REQUESTED again and again! And did I mention how much faster it is than make individual sliced french toast!?! Perfect for a busy mom who loves to please the bellies around her table! 😉
