Baked French Toast recipe?

Does anyone have a baked French toast recipe they like?
Preferably one that can be put together the night before & baked in the morning .....and isn't soggy!!!

While we're on the subject, what else does everyone have for Christmas breakfast/brunch?

Here's the one we've used the past few years. Not the healthiest choice, but really good!

This sounds delicious! DD#1 is allergic to cinnamon, but that can easily be omitted. Thanks for sharing.

Recipe
French Toast Loaf
Main Street Bake Shop
Magic Kingdom



YIELD: 1 Loaf

Ingredients:

12 slices day-old white bread (preferably a homestyle white, not Wonder Bread
type)

8 oz. butter (chilled and sliced)

Brown sugar batch:

9 oz, light brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix together and set aside.

Batter:

10 oz. heavy cream
4 large eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Mix together and refrigerate until ready to use.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Method:

Liberally spray a loaf pan with Pam or other vegetable spray. Layer three slices day old bread on bottom of pan. Sprinkle 1/3 brown sugar mixture on top of bread, then layer 1/3 of the butter. Repeat these steps two more times. Top off with three more slices of bread (should have a total of 12 slices of bread). Press down with hand to compact bread into loaf pan.

Slowly pour 16 oz. of batter over top of loaf, covering completely. This may take a little time, to allow it to fully absorb into bread and flow into spaces at bottom. (Take
your time here and pour into corners. Lift bread at corners a little to get into bottom quicker if you want.)


Place loaf pan on some paper towel in case of overflow. Cover top of loaf with parchment paper and wrap top tightly with aluminum foil. Place in refrigerator and allow to sit overnight.

Heat oven to 325º F. Bake for approximately 1 hour or until internal temperature in center of loaf is 160 degrees. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Place a plate on top of loaf pan and invert to remove from pan. Cut into 7 slices and serve.


We usually heat up some blueberry pie filling and serve this on top, with a dollop of whipped cream



This is my traditional Christmas Day breakfast..yummy!

Can't help with the French toast casserole -- my family doesn't like them for the reasons you noted.

For Christmas morning, I do a casserole with egg and bacon -- make it the night before. I also make cinnamon rolls the night before -- put in the fridge. Rise while the casserole's baking, and then bake while the casserole's setting. Mmmmmm....

I pinned one recent;y that is made in a crock pot. I haven't made it yet and am a bit nervous that it will be gummy, like bread pudding, so maybe I will do one of these instead.

Here is the crock pot one:

I have a recipe for Grand Marnier French toast that I am going to try. I've never had a baked French toast before and I hope that it is not soggy.

Highly recommend Paula Deen's recipe. It's certainly not 'healthy', but absolutely a delicious treat for special occasions. I'll be making it for the third year in a row this Christmas:

I don't like it for the reasons you posted, too soggy. lol I make Monkey Bread, the family devours it. We have it with juice or hot chocolate or hot tea (the tea is really for me lol). I put it in the oven while we are opening gifts (I make it the night before) and then we eat it while it's still warm, sometimes we are still opening gifts. After that wears off we start munching on snacks, dips and things like that, then we eat our meal later that night.

I'm trying to figure out which recipe I will want to use for Christmas morning (hopefully late morning since I have a 14 and almost 19 year old).
Can you please tell me which one is too soggy for you.
THANKS!

I've never found any of the recipes to turn out soggy. The bread absorbs the liquid overnight and as long as you bake the casserole for enough time, it sets up nicely.

Thanks for mentioning this recipe! Along with OP, I don't like soggy french toast....and all the french toast casseroles I've made turn out that way.

The Pioneer Woman's recipe notes to cook it longer if you want a crispier texture. So that's what I plan to do!

Here's the recipe if anyone else is interested:
