A delicious and wholesome version of the classic French Toast Casserole, this recipe is perfect for holiday entertaining and special gatherings with family and friends.
Use a whole loaf, not a presliced loaf, of bread, so you can cut it into even thick 1x1x1-inch cubes. It’s important that the bread cubes aren’t overlapping, because too much bread makes for a dry casserole.
Sprinkle casserole lightly with additional ground cinnamon. Cut 1-2 tablespoons of butter into small pieces and evenly distribute across top of casserole. The butter adds flavor and keeps the casserole moist.
