French Toast Casserole is the perfect make ahead breakfast recipe. It’s a sweet and delicious recipe the whole family will love.
I love Saturday morning breakfasts. Since we are always rushing to get out the door to church on Sunday that makes Saturday our relaxed morning. We don’t have kids yet so we are enjoying being able to sleep in and enjoy a nice leisurely breakfast together. One of my favorite things to make for Saturday breakfast is this French Toast Casserole. And it doesn’t hurt that it makes a lot so I can enjoy it during the week.
I have a great love for anything with brown sugar and french toast. With this recipe the two are combined into the ultimate breakfast casserole. This is a dish that my Aunt Melanie makes so I got the recipe from her because I wanted to make it for us. It is simple to make, sweet and delicious. You prepare it the night before in your casserole dish then put it in the oven in the morning and you get a delicious breakfast.
Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day. I love grits, french toast, pancakes, and the list could go on and on. I’m a sucker for breakfast foods of most kinds. This French Toast Casserole ranks right up there at the top with a good bowl of cheese grits. What is your favorite breakfast food?
