French Toast Casserole

SUBMITTED BY: Susan Arcement
INGREDIENTS:


1/3 cup light brown sugar
¼ cup butter, melted
6 slices white bread
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Confectioners’ sugar, optional
Cane or maple syrup, optional

 

DIRECTIONS:

Spray sides and bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking oil spray. In a small bowl, stir together sugar and butter. Spread mixture over baking pan evenly. Arrange bread slices on top of butter-sugar mixture.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour over bread. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°. Let casserole sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Bake until lightly browned, about 25-30 minutes. With a spatula, turn over each slice and return to oven about 10-12 more minutes.

Top with confectioners’ sugar and serve with warm syrup, if desired.
