Have I told you guys how picky my kid is? I know a long time ago I was humble bragging about what a good eater my kid is.
I take every last word of those humble brags back. I’m totally sorry if anyone read posts from 2 years ago about how she ate actual vegetables. Because now she lives on pixie dust and breakfast food. Every single night for dinner she wants French toast. Sometimes she switches it up a little and wants French toast and bacon.
It’s good to walk on the wild side I guess.
My husband and I have made so much French toast over the past few months. Like I could do it in my sleep because I am doing it at least once a day but sometimes twice. And I have to tell you stovetop French toast does not have a candle to this easy baked French toast casserole.
This easy baked French toast casserole tastes exactly like a cinnamon roll. EXACTLY. The combo of the Left Field Farms vanilla coffee creamer, brown sugar, and cinnamon make a deliciously decadent custard. And topping the whole thing with more brown sugar and melted butter? Ohhhh yes.
This is one of those breakfast dishes that would be perfect to make for Christmas morning because you can make it ahead. It would also rock as a Mother’s Day brunch meal because kids can definitely do most of the work since it’s easy and rather than cutting the bread into cubes you can have them tear it into cubes.
After the bread is cubed, you just throw it into a buttered 3 quart baking dish. Then you whip together the coffee creamer, eggs, cinnamon and just a touch of brown sugar. You don’t need very much at all since Left Field Farms sweetens its real cream creamer with actual sugar. Something you won’t find in the creamer? GMOs. Pretty sweet huh?

After you make the custard mix, you just pour it over the bread cubes. Then cover it and pop it in the fridge for at least four hours but you can let it soak overnight so it is the perfect make ahead breakfast or brunch situation for those entertaining occasions.
Then the morning of you just pop it in the oven and bam, breakfast on the table.
Or if your my kid, almost a week’s worth of meals. You know, whatever.

Easy Baked French Toast Casserole is the perfect make ahead breakfast or brunch for special occasions like Christmas morning or Mother’s Day but easy enough to do any weekend.
- 1 loaf of bakery style French bread (not the skinny loaves but a thicker loaf)
- 6 eggs
- 1.5 c of Left Field Farms vanilla coffee creamer
- 1/2 c brown sugar divided
- 1 tbs cinnamon
- 6 tbs melted butter
- Cut the loaf of bread into 1 inch cubes. Put bread cubes inside a 9×13, 3 quart casserole dish that has been liberally buttered or sprayed with nonstick spray. Set aside. In a separate bowl, beat together 6 eggs, half of the brown sugar, the creamer and 1 tbs cinnamon until thoroughly combined. Pour over the bread evenly. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate at least 4 hours but overnight is better.
- When you are ready to bake, remove from fridge, uncover, and preheat oven to 400. Melt 6 tbs of butter in the microwave and pour evenly over top of the casserole. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar evenly on top of the casserole. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes. Top as desired. Enjoy!
