Overnight French Toast Casserole


Overnight French Toast Casserole has all the goodness of French toast and then some thanks to that sweet crumble topping! It’s made with a rich, cinnamony custard-soaked sourdough bread and even the pickiest eaters will love it. It makes for the perfect holiday or weekend breakfast, and you’ll love that you can make it the night before serving!



This easy overnight french toast uses ingredients I bet you already have on hand (those are the best types of holiday breakfast recipes, am I right?).


With this make ahead French toast casserole recipe, the fresh bread is diced up into cubes then soaked overnight in a rich custard that has plenty of that ever so creamy and lovely half and half.



The base for this overnight french toast casserole is made with sourdough bread, not the first thing you’d thick to make french toast with maybe, but I started using sourdough for french toast about 10 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since.

The sourdough offers a nice slightly tangy flavor similar to that in buttermilk or sour cream pancakes. It just gives it more flavor overall because white bread can be pretty bland and boring.

The French toast casserole itself isn’t very sweet at all, as the topping and the maple syrup bring almost all of the sweetness here. So don’t leave them off! I didn’t want things to be overly sweet, so once you finish it off with maple syrup it has the perfect balance of sweetness.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (anything but skim)
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 (14.5 - 16 oz) loaf sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch slices then slices cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter, plus more butter for baking dish
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (about 1 tsp)
  • Real maple syrup or pancake syrup, for serving
  • Crumble topping
  • 1/3 cup (46g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup (78g) packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup (56g) unsalted butter, cold and diced into small cubes


Instructions


  1. For the French toast: Butter a 13 by 9-inch baking dish. Add bread cubes to baking dish spreading them into an even layer. In a mixing bowl with a pour spout whisk together sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. 
  2. Add in eggs and whisk until well blended, while scraping bowl. Pour in milk, half and half and vanilla and whisk until well blended. 
  3. Slowly and evenly pour egg mixture over bread cubes working to coat all of them (if you miss a few just turn and dunk them into the custard that's in the dish). Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight, or at least 10 hours.
  4. In the morning preheat oven to 350 degrees and while oven is preheating remove casserole from fridge and let rest at room temperature, it should rest about 15 minutes. Also, prepare crumble while oven is preheating.
  5. For the crumble: In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.
  6. Add butter and cut into flour mixture using a pastry cutter or a long pronged fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, transfer to fridge if oven hasn't fully preheated yet then add it just before placing casserole in oven.
  7. Sprinkle casserole evenly with crumble then bake in preheated oven until set and center is cooked through and no longer soggy, about 38 - 45 minutes. 
  8. Let cool a few minutes, pour melted butter over top, dust with powdered sugar if desired, then cut into squares and serve warm drizzling each serving with maple syrup.
  9. Recipe Notes
  10. I recommend using hearty bread like La Brea. Hearty French bread can be used as well.
  11. For easier, less messy cutting transfer bread to a plastic bag if it's in a paper bag and let it sit for a day. It makes cutting easier and less messy.
  12. If you don't have a mixing bowl with a pour spout at the end mixing you can transfer the egg mixture to a liquid measuring cup with a pour spout and pour it from there.
  13. The casserole itself isn't that sweet so don't leave off the maple syrup. Syrup is not included in nutritional info.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
