A long time ago I had a friend share a recipe and I was hooked. It has become one of my comfort foods. It's also wicked simple to make. The other night I decided I wanted to make it for breakfast. It was also about 11:30pm when I decided to whip this batch of French Toast Casserole up. I don't have my own cooking show so here is the pictorial.
Slice your bread into cubes. I usually use an 8x8 pan because there are only three of us. I used a baguette. It's nice and chewy and soaks up the custard well.
Add some cream cheese.
Mmmmm Nutmeg. Not that canned stuff! Fresh is the best! I don't think that Nutmeg is in the recipe but I add it to any cream base. It makes it just that much yummier! And coffee, it's so yummy in coffee.
Custard! I usually add a bit of maple syrup to the custard instead of sugar.
Make room in the fridge for a couple of hours. It will be there waiting for you in the morning to pop in the oven.
All browned up and delicious looking!
A little bit of real maple syrup and I was in heaven. It was even pretty good the next day. Now I am making myself hungry all over again.
