French Toast Casserole Recipe

10 Apr

As I mentioned in my previous post Holiday Weekend — Easter Paella Lunch, I got a bunch of great recipes from my friend’s book that I plan to put to the test. One of those recipes that got my attention is a french toast casserole. I thought it was very interesting idea, instead of making each toast individually, the bread is soaked in the mix of all the ingredients and baked in the oven.

Ingredients:

– (22 ounce) loaf bread

– 8 large eggs whites

– 2 cups of milk

– 1 cup of orange juice

– 2 tablespoons of maple syrup

– 1 tablespoon of cinnamon

– 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

– 1 teaspoon of nutmeg

– Dash of salt

– Butter or butter-flavored cooking spray

– 1/2 cup of blueberries.

1. Preheat oven to 350°

2. Arrange bread slices in two overlapping rows in a 13×9 – inch backing dish coated with butter or cooking spray.

3. Place egg whites into large bowl, stir well with a whisk.

Add milk, orange juice, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and salt, stirring well with a whisk.

Pour egg mixture over bread, covering all of the surface. Let stand for 10 minutes. Coat with cooking spray, sprinkle with blueberries.

4. Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes or until top is golden. Cut into squares and serve with a maple syrup and powdered sugar if desired.

As you can see from the picture on the right I didn’t use blueberries, simply because we didn’t have it at home. But it didn’t stop my husband and me from enjoying this french toast casserole under the coat of maple syrup for breakfast. The top part came out perfectly toasted, while the inside had the texture of a bread pudding. An absolute treat! (:

Hope you’ll find this recipe interesting!
