Easter French Toast Casserole

This Easter French Toast Casserole is so easy to throw together! You can whip it up the night before and then bake it in the morning. It’ll be ready to serve with coffee before an early morning egg hunt, or with a a few other menu items after church for brunch.

For the bread, we typically use challah or brioche, but we’ve also really enjoyed our local grocery’s cinnamon breakfast bread. Once you have the bread chopped up, the rest is simple! Just whisk together eggs with half-and-half, milk, vanilla, maple syrup and salt. Then pour the custard over the bread and you’re done! Just wrap it up with foil and let the bread soak up the custard over night. Then bake in morning — with no mess to clean up before company arrives!
