Easy, fuss-free breakfast! I made this at night, substituting 1/2 cup of heavy cream for 1/2 cup of the overall milk. I also added a cup of frozen fruit I had in my freezer, (strawberries, pineapple, papaya, and mango) and it added a great island feel! I do agree that the cover needs to be taken off at the end of the baking, just to add some crunch to the dish.
Really enjoyed your recipe, was just like having a piece of cinnamon sugar toast.
Super easy to make! I followed others' suggestions and used less liquid , left it overnight in a plastic bag and removed the foil for about ten minutes to crisp the top. A big hit with the family!
I also used about ¾ of the liquid and placed the bread in a bag with the liquid over night. Super delicious! everyone raved about it!!
a great version of the french toast casserole. Love the cinnamon and sugar. Easy, overnight recipe. Wonderful addition to a family brunch.
