French Toast Casserole

I started a new tradition this Christmas and brought French toast casserole to our family's Christmas. Usually R wakes up early and gets us Shipley's but things have changed now. My immediate family and I head to my parent's house and the kids enjoy what Santa brought to Nana and Papa's house. Sadie now brings the donuts and we eat breakfast and open gifts. Can't wait for next Christmas with Walkie there.

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 loaf Texas toast (We use Rainbow and cut the crust off)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Powdered sugar to your liking
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • 9x13 pan
  1. Melt butter in the microwave
  2. When melted, add brown sugar and mix well
  3. Pour the melted butter and brown sugar mix in the bottom of your pan.
  4. Beat eggs and add in milk and vanilla
  5. Layer the Texas toast on top of the brown sugar mixture.
  6. Ladle half of the milk mixture onto the bread 
  7. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top. * I combine the sugar and cinnamon and mix them together in a cup before I sprinkle on top of the bread. There are no define measurements for the mixture. Sprinkle to your liking!
  8. Add second layer of Texas toast
  9. Ladle the rest of the milk mixture onto the bread.
