When my wife and I hosted a breakfast for our church group, we wanted to avoid the last-minute rush of cooking. So we decided to try this make-ahead French toast. Everyone loved it and requested the recipe.

"My husband and I really enjoyed this French toast bake! I cut the recipe in half and baked it in an 8x8-inch pan, which worked just fine. I also used leftover cubed hot dog buns instead of the French bread. We thought it was delicious and I will definitely be making this again!"
