Christmas breakfast is always a big deal right" It’s one of those meals I look forward to all year. For Christmas breakfast we always have lots of fresh fruit, bacon, breakfast potatoes, fresh orange juice then something like Belgian Waffles or Red Velvet Pancakes. This year though I’d like to be able to make most of the main dish the night before so I’m going with this seriously delicious Overnight French Toast Casserole!The base is made with sourdough bread, not the first thing you’d thick to make french toast with maybe but I started using sourdough for french toast about 10 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. The sourdough offers a nice slightly tangy flavor similar to that in buttermilk or sour cream pancakes. It just gives it more flavor overall because white bread can be pretty bland and boring.With this recipe the fresh bread is diced up into cubes then soaked overnight in a rich custard that has plenty of that ever so creamy and lovely half and half. And the following morning all you have to do is take it out of the fridge, preheat the oven, sprinkle it with a simple cinnamon crumble and bake it up. Oh and let’s not forget finishing it with melted butter and maple syrup is a must! The casserole itself isn’t very sweet at all, the topping and the maple syrup bring almost all of the sweetness here so don’t leave them off. I didn’t want things to be overly sweet so once you finish it off with maple syrup it has the perfect balance of sweetness.This tempting breakfast casserole is so good that I think you need to do one trial run before Christmas, right" This has all the goodness of French toast and then some and you’ll love that you can make it a the night before serving it, espeically if you aren’t a morning person like me.I hope you all have a wonderful holiday week filled with good times and good food!PrintOvernight French Toast Casserole Ingredients3 Tbsp granulated sugar3/4 tsp ground cinnamon1 pinch ground nutmeg6 large eggs1 cup milk (anything but skim)1 cup half and half1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract1 (14.5 - 16 oz) loaf sourdough bread, such as La Brea, cut into 1-inch slices then slices cut into 1-inch cubes*2 Tbsp melted butter, plus more butter for baking dishPowdered sugar (about 1 tsp), for dusting top (optional)Real maple syrup or pancake syrup, for servingCrumble topping1/3 cup (46g) all-purpose flour1/3 cup (78g) packed light brown sugar3/4 tsp ground cinnamon1/8 tsp salt1/4 cup (56g) unsalted butter, cold and diced into small cubesDirectionsButter a 13 by 9-inch baking dish.
