French toast casserole

Before this warm weather hit,  we had an all-in-one dinner, dessert and breakfast! This delicious dish was a casserole of cubed french baguette, sausage, nuts and berries. A baguette is best fresh, unless you are turning it into French Toast! I took my fairly stale bread, soaked it in my egg mixture, then spread it out in a pan, added my sliced cooked sausage, studded it with pecans, dotted it with butter, and topped it all off with berries and maple syrup. It was awesome!

  • 1 large baguette
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cinnamon
  • 3 sausage (Maple sausage, house made at John’s Deli)
  • 1/2 + of pecans
  • 2-3 tbs butter
  • berries and syrup to top it off

It’s best to get your bread soaking first – the longer the better (even overnight in the fridge). Since we wanted to eat asap, our dinner only soaked half an hour or so.
Crack eggs and whisk with milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
Dice the bread and toss in egg mixture to coat. Let the bread absorb the egg as you continue.

Cook your sausages. I cooked mine in the frying pan with a little water. Once cooked, slice into medallions and add to bread/egg mixture.

Grease your baking dish (9×13) and pour in your bread/sausage mixture so it is evenly distributed. Sprinkle pecans throughout and pop in an 350 oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden.

Dish onto a plate and serve with berries and maple syrup…. or ketchup, whichever you’d prefer
