Really good. We had breakfast for dinner tonight. I made hash browns to have with it. My hubby had 3 squares of it, drizzled with maple syrup. Sinfully good! Easy to make.
So goodI made it for my family
I love this recipe, I’m 11, this i just made it for the second time!! I was looking for a recipe like this
Yes! We love hearing this, Sanaa! You have so many cooking adventures ahead of you in life, enjoy them!
It is absolutely delicious. I added blackberries and have also tried mixed berries.
Absolutely delicious! My whole family loves it. I use sourdough bread, omit the zest and reserve the pecans for the top. I make it thru step 4 in the evening and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, I sprinkle pecan halves on top, then drizzle the topping over all and bake convection at 350 for 25-30 mins. The pecans come out caramelized and I love the contrast between the crusty top and the spongy middle. Has become a Sunday morning favorite for our family. Thanks for sharing!
Sounds yummy! I want to make this for breakfast tomorrow. Can I add apples or cooked sausage into the mix?
Yes, great idea! I’d not go overboard with apples, since they might weep liquid into the custard too much. Perhaps a max of 2. Good luck!
Does anyone have the nutritional information for this recipe? It looks amazing!
Hi, Cris! We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one.
I used up some cinnamon raisin bread I had left over from a previous quarantine project – this came out really great!
Mmm, sounds wonderful. We love to hear you are putting your quarantine cooking projects to good use, Maggie!
This came out perfectly. I didn’t have an orange to zest or pecans and it was still delicious. My boyfriend ate half the pan in one sitting, so that was a big thumbs up from him.
This is soooo yummy! It’s our only French Toast Casserole recipe; we have made it at least a dozen times! When our 4-year old asks for French toast, this is the only thing he will eat! Thank you for this amazing recipe.
My boyfriends son is 13 and a very picky eater along with his twin 4 year old boys and I made this for them and they loved it
I made it for Mother’s Day and it was a big hit! I also made again last night to let it sit, I’m going to bake it today for brunch.
This was delicious! I made it for Mothers’ Day brunch and everyone enjoyed it.
It was delicious and so quick to put together.
It was so good! I have made it several times
Loved it but i made it was cinnamon rolls and added a powdered sugar glaze in the custard and vanilla
Cinnamon roll French toast, what a great idea! Thanks for sharing, Becky.
Love how easy and delicious this is. I used leftover home made brioche which was amazing.
Also, I have bread that is already sliced and it’s probably more like 1/2 inch thick. Are smaller chunks going to ruin this recipe? They won’t be 2 by 1. Thanks!
Perhaps just cut down a bit on the resting time after assembly. Good luck!
Hi what would be the dimensions (approximate or otherwise) of the optimal size pan to use for this?
I think for you with your smaller bread cubes, a 3-quart dish would be optimal. Dimensions would be about 9 x 13.
This is a Godsend! Thanks so much for sharing :-) I adapted this by using cheese instead of pecan nuts, only yolks because our tummies can’t cope with egg whites and didn’t even add the topping and it still worked! Budget friendly and delicious :-) I’ll try adding the cinnamon next time.
