Ingredient List
French Toast Casserole:
  • 1 loaf French bread (day-old is great)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Topping :
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup diced butter
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
Making the Casserole
  • Cut bread into chunks and spread evenly in a generously greased 9 x 13 pan.

  • Mix eggs, milk, cream, sugar, pumpkin, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice together and pour over bread. Gently press bread down into egg mixture to ensure all bread is coated.

  • In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, butter and pumpkin pie spice for the topping and sprinkle mixture evenly over bread.

  • Cover and allow to refrigerate overnight before baking.

  • Remove from refrigerator and bake at 350oF for about 45 minutes, or until set in the middle. If necessary, tent with foil toward the end of the bake time to prevent overbrowning.

Recipe Notes
  • Top it with maple syrup, powdered sugar, chopped pecans, or a spoonful of fruit and enjoy!
