This French toast casserole is easy to prepare. You can make it the night before and let it sit overnight for a delicious breakfast the next morning.

I use my real vanilla extract, and it's so delicious.

I actually used leftover hot dog buns to make this casserole! You can use pretty much any bread. When there are a few pieces of bread or a buns that are getting hard but still good, I freeze them to make this casserole.

We usually have this for breakfast for dinner and not in the mornings. I make bacon or sausage and a big pan of scrambled eggs to go with it.

My kids love this, and it's a quick and easy breakfast or dinner. It's also really cheap, especially if you freeze bread like I do.
