Make-Ahead French Toast Casserole
We are always on the lookout for awesome recipes to share with our friends. We found this Make-Ahead French Toast Casserole recipe and boy is it delicious!!
This is just perfect to make for Christmas morning as most everything is done the night before so you don’t have to give up too much of your “family” time slaving away in the kitchen. It also works well for a nice Sunday morning breakfast.
French Toast is one of those things that always brings a warm happy feeling to my heart. I think it is important to sit down at the kitchen table as often as possible as a family. Usually, it is just a dinner thing, except on the weekends. If there isn’t too much going on we are able to eat as a family on both Saturday and Sunday. However, it usually just works out to Sunday with the different schedules going on.
This is one of those recipes that tastes like it took a great deal of effort and time to prepare but in reality, it is pretty quick and very easy.
We hope you enjoy this yummy French Toast Casserole and will share your thoughts with us.

Hi girls! I love make ahead breakfast dishes, great post! Just wanted to stop by and say, “Hello!” ~ http://www.melissassouthernstylekitchen.com
I love the Make-Ahead-French Toast for Christmas morning, or any time. I would like to make this when my dear sister in law and husband come to visit us later this month. At one time I had the instructions for using eggnog instead of the milk. It was very good too. Can’t wait to try this!
