Breakfast French Toast Casserole is a breakfast classic that’ll be a hit every time you make it! It is the perfect breakfast or brunch dish for any occasion!
This is one of the few breakfast casserole ideas that has become a staple with my family. I made it one year for Christmas breakfast and now it’s become a tradition. I can serve eggs, bacon, fruit, or anything else I want to serve up for everyone…as long as there’s French Toast Casserole too. My family loves this dish so much I make it as a surprise on the weekends too, when I’m not making Belgian Waffles.

The best part is, you can cut down on some of the prep time by cubing the bread the night before. Bread that’s a bit dried out soaks up the liquid better. Double win. Just throw this dish in the oven and get your french toast on!
