I need to tell you that I used to take a strongly anti-French toast casserole stance. What I like most about French toast is its crispy exterior. If you also feel this way about French toast, you should know that French toast casserole doesn’t deliver the browned custardy surface of regular French toast.

But still! It’s won its way into my regular rotation of easy weekend brunches because it’s so good!

Instead of thinking of French toast casserole as French toast, I like to think of it more as bread pudding that you can eat for breakfast. And dessert for breakfast is always a win.
