How to Make French Toast Casserole
If baking immediately, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 13×9 baking dish with non-stick spray. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt butter with sugar and corn syrup. Whisk until fully combined and sugar has dissolved.
Pour into the bottom of the greased baking dish.
Cube the cinnamon raisin bread into one-inch cubes. Lay bread cubes over the butter mixture.
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pour the egg mixture over bread. Cover with foil.
PRO TIP: If making ahead of time, this would be when you would refrigerate the french toast casserole overnight (or all day).
Bake casserole with foil for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional additional 20 minutes.
PRO TIP: As you scoop each serving out with a spatula, be sure to get the syrup on the bottom of the pan!
Top with extra syrup and/or powdered sugar. ENJOY.
French Toast Casserole Recipe Ideas
Change up the type of bread. Use brioche for a sweet, chewy texture. Hawaiian bread, White Bread, and even Banana Bread makes a delicious french toast as well.
Add extra raisins, craisins, and/or nuts for flavor and texture.
Can you freeze French Toast Casserole?
Assemble french toast casserole in a foil pan. Cover with foil and freeze for up to 3 months.
Allow to thaw in refrigerator overnight and bake as directed. You may need to add extra time to baking if not fully thawed.
