French Toast Casserole
French toast casserole sounds like an ideal family breakfast, but only if the dish looks and tastes like breakfast, not dessert.
Why This Recipe Works
Making French toast can be easy, but if you’re trying to make it for more than four people, someone is guaranteed to get cold, soggy French toast. We fixed that by translating the concept of French toast into a casserole. We layered potato bread (which held up better than regular sandwich bread) with a gooey brown sugar–cinnamon mixture and butter and then poured a creamy custard over the top. We finished by sprinkling the casserole with sliced almonds. The result? A 13 by 9-inch dish filled with layers of tender, sweet French toast—ready all at once.
