I use to love french toast but as i got older it just got kinda boring. I had a taste for some recently but didn't have any bread but i did have some frozen waffles and used that instead and boy oh boy was that so much better. Now, when i get the urge for something sweet (i don't just eat breakfast food at breakfast) i'll whip up a few french cinnamon waffles!
After an hour of cooking the middle was still a bit mushy....I think I will re-try with less milk maybe 2 cups instead of 3....I also mixed the cinnamon into the liquid before pouring it over the bread so that each piece gets some cinnamon on it...then sprinkled more cinnamon over the top with the brown sugar and butter.... Will re-post after tweaking this recipe....
Pretty good! Really easy to make. Even after adding the maple syrup, I think I would have liked this a little sweeter - which is bad, but just what I thought would have taken it from good to great.
My family was not a fan of this recipe.
My coworker made this casserole 2 years in a row for a holiday brunch and I just found the recipe she gave me from a year ago! :D The only difference is a dash of cinnamon in the bread mixture and 1 teas. total cinnamon in the topping. Of all the recipes I have eaten, I like this one best, not too eggy or sweet. Thanks for posting! It's delish!
This is an amazing twist on traditional French toast that my family absolutely loves! I made it for Thanksgiving and Christmas morning, and it was delicious both times. I like to add diced apples or pears and dust a little icing sugar over top before serving. YUM YUM YUM! Thanks for posting :)
Thank you for posting this Nicole. I made this once at Christmas and then had an idea of making it for a brunch I was going to yesterday. Cooked it and went to put it into my Carrier and there was another copy of your recipe sitting there from Christmas time. My mother, who does not care for the usual Breakfast of Pancakes or Waffles, absolutely loved this casserole as did the rest of the family. The only thing that I do different is use only half of the sugar and cinnamon mixture. I let everyone else add their own sugar and cinnamon if they want afterwards. Thanks again.
Great recipe. I put sliced apples before adding the sugar and cinammon. Everyone raved about the dish! Thanks for posting!
YUMMY!!! This dish is super easy. I used french bread that was very fresh. I used Saigon cinnamon because that is the favorite in the house. It is the perfect dish for a special breakfast, Christmas, Birthday or whenever. Thanks for sharing!!
This was ok but not great. Very plain. I used left over bread from tea sandwiches and perhaps the fact that there was honey wheat bread in there was what made it just so-so. Perhaps we'll try again with plain old wheat.
