I absolutely love a good French Toast, but the thought of cooking it for a crowd sounds so time consuming. I love this version because I can assemble it fairly quickly, put it in the oven and forget about it. Not only does this free up time to put together a few sides, but it also means that everyone can enjoy the dish while it’s hot and fresh out of the oven. It’s a great make ahead breakfast for busy mornings or big holiday gatherings. I like to use brioche bread that has been left out for several hours. I like the slight sweetness the brioche adds and letting it dry out a bit beforehand ensures that you don’t end up with a soggy French toast. I love serving this with a good drizzle of real maple syrup, a side of bacon and some fresh fruit.

Begin by buttering a 9x13” baking dish. Slice the brioche bread into 1” cubes and place in the dish.

Pour the egg mixture over the bread.

I like to drizzle some additional maple syrup and melted butter over the bread before baking.

Bake until all of the egg has cooked and the bread is a gorgeous golden brown color.

Drizzle with some maple syrup and enjoy!

Try adding fresh blueberries to the bread before baking for an equally delicious variation!

Instructions

Bread

Cut the Brioche loaf up into 1” pieces and place in a greased 9x13” baking dish.
Preheat oven to 375.

Egg Mixture

I’m a bowl mix together eggs, milk, sugar, butter, vanilla and cinnamon.
Evenly pour the egg mixture over the bread.
Melt remaining butter and mix with 3 tbsp maple syrup. Drizzle over the bread and egg mixture.
Cover with tinfoil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and Continue to bake for an additional 20 minutes or until all of the egg is cooked.
Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Tips

  • It’s best for the bread to be slightly dried out. You can leave it or if the bag for several hours prior to cooking.
  • If making ahead prepare the egg mixture the night before and keep in the refrigerator. Pour over the bread right before baking.

      Just a standard loaf of bread.... the measurements for the bread doesn’t need to be precise for this one. As long as you have enough to loosely fill the pan. Hope that helps 😊

    We make this with raisins in, we call it bread pudding. Its eaten as a desert, you can also pour custard over the top.

    French toast to us is slices of bread dipped in mixed egg & milk with salt & pepper, then fried in a frying pan until it turns a nice golden colour, serve on its own or with bacon.
