The Wifey’s Mother’s Day (or any day) French Toast Casserole

Mother’s Day can be stressful, right?!?

We all want to show our Mom’s some major love, but scoring that “perfect” reservation or cooking a delicious breakfast can seem nearly impossible.

Growing up, my Mom made the best French Toast EVER…and I’ve tried to recreate that delicious dish…and add a Wifey Twist.

I got it* from my mamma *my height at the very least

Me and my Mom on the day I became a Wifey

This French Toast feast is pretty much guaranteed to be flawless and it’s fun to make with kids. (it involves ripping things with your bare hands!)

  • a loaf of bread. I used Challah bread from my local Plum Market, you can use any variety including; whole wheat, raisin, white bread or even a loaf of stale stuff. tip: if it’s moldy, it ain’t gonna work
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup of half and half
  • 1 cup of milk, I used low fat vanilla (can be; skim, full fat, vanilla, almond, soy- I’ve even seen people use Rumchata)
  • 3 tsp cinnamon * in the video I only use about 1tsp- but in the batch before I used 3 tbsp and it tasted MUCH better*
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • a 9 x 13 pan and either butter or Pam spray to grease the pan
  • any *extras* you’d like to throw in. Examples: walnuts, bananas, blueberries, raisins…get CRAZY with it.

What To Do: 

  • set your oven to 425
  • grease your pan & pour 1/2 syrup to coat the bottom

  • slice your loaf

  • then rip apart the slices into about 1 inch pieces- don’t stress over the size- in this case it really doesn’t matter

  • crack your eggs in a bowl, add half and half, milk , cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and sugar and mix it with a whisk or fork until combined

  • dump your bread pieces into the pan
  • dump your egg mix over the bread , slowly and evenly

  • take your hands and mush down the bread to make sure every piece has taken an egg bath
  • pour 1/2 cup syrup on top
  • pop into the oven for 30 mins, check on it-it should be fluffed up.  if it’s getting burned, take it out. If it looks ok, let it bake 10 more mins.
