Description

There’s no need to stand over the stove flipping slices of French toast when you make a French toast casserole. You can prep the afternoon or night before, refrigerate overnight, and pop it in the oven the next morning for an easy breakfast. This version of the recipe features a generous amount of eggnog, whole eggs, rum, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pecans, all with tender brioche bread or challah bread. Get ready for the kitchen to smell amazing when you pull it out of the oven. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.

    Directions

    1. Coat a 9x11-inch or other shallow 2-quart baking dish with cooking oil spray. Arrange the bread slices slightly overlapping in the dish.
    2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, eggnog, rum, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Carefully pour mixture over the bread.
    3. Press bread down into the dish, ensuring all of the slices are covered with egg mixture. Cover the dish and refrigerate overnight; just before going to bed, gently press the bread down again into the egg mixture.

    Loved this. So easy to make the night before. Then popped it in the oven Christmas morning. My family loved it as well. Will definitely make it again.
