Recipe: B-f-f French toast casserole

What's a girl to do when her b-f-fs are flying in for the holidays and overnighting on her ridiculously, hilariously TURBO air mattress and she wants to serve them breakfast?!

Compounded by the fact that neither she nor her dear husband have any confidence in making even the simplest of morning meals (i.e. pancakes)?


Never fear. B-f-f French toast casserole is here! And oh, friends, is it ever easy to please (and you can make it pre-festivities thus no time is taken from reminiscing about weirdo old neighbors who spoke Pirate or how sloooooow a certain b-f-f drank her chocolate milk every.single.meal. or how another certain b-f-f still doesn't know the name of that girl she-thought-she-knew-but-turns-out-didn't or how the other b-f-f got caught ((this-zipper-will-not-MOVE-caught!)) in her Dorothy costume...or just hug and say I'm SO glad you're HERE!!!)

And here it is: B-f-f French toast casserole
***EDIT: This recipe is adapted from here. ***

Note: I hear all you journalism majors snickering in the corner. Naturally, this recipe does not INCLUDE b-f-fs. It merely is meant to be enjoyed WITH b-f-fs. Oh, whatever.

  • 12 slices bread (any ol' kind you like)

  • 1 tsp nutmeg*
  • 1 tsp cloves*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
*It's really anyone's guess how much of these were added. My husband is a spice-a-holic. 


The night before:
1. Chunk bread and put in a 9x13 pan.
2. Mix ingredients.
3. Pour mixture over bread in the pan.
4. Top with brown sugar (and more spices if you are a spice-a-holic).

MMM! Think you'll want this again Saturday morning? :) And my favorite recipe direction yet is: "Chunk bread."

Katie--ha! True. Maybe next year Breanna can bust out the costume???

Lauren--HA! I know!!! That is what the recipe said...and I figured, well, can't really say it any better. haha. Also, UM you could feed me Pop Tarts and I would be delighted! (and not just because my mom refused to buy them when we were growing up--I KNOW! Scarred for life). Can't WAIT!
