    Good start, better with variations

    My version is similar, although slightly simpler. I also vary it each time I make it. I grease a 9x13 with butter, lay in 6 slices of bread (usu. Pepperidge Farm, and whatever looked good at the store that week: raisin cinnamon, caramel apple, pumpkin, &c.), sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice, lay another layer of six slices on top. In a bowl, mix together 3 eggs, and any combination of milk, juice (usu. orange-peach-mango), cream, or kefir I happen to have on hand, about a cup altogether. Add some sea salt, vanilla, and maple syrup. Pour the whole thing over the bread, give it a minute to soak in. 30 minutes at 350º. It puffs up like a soufflé. Be willing to live the fact that the top layer will be dryer than the bottom, but I always serve up the top and bottom slices as a "French toast sandwich." My kids love it better than fried on the griddle.

    French Toast Casserole is good to try

    Everyone liked this in my home...I added 3 extra slices of the cinnamon bread, only 2 cups of milk, and added some additional cinnamon!

    I love this and so do the kids! I've made this a couple times now and it definitely needs to bake more than an hour and is best if it cools a while. Overall, it is great!

    French Toast Casserole

    Very easy recipe which everyone in my home loves. Next time I may opt for 2-2 1/2 cups of milk so that the casserole can set up better. Turned out okay this first time to me but definitely needs a little more cinnamon and vanilla as well as a little too soggy for my taste. Definitely best to let cool which helps a little with the extra liquid. Also remove from baking dish.

    French Toast Casserole

    I have cooked this twice now and both times it has not come out. I do not understand what I am doing wrong. Each time I have cooked this dish the inside has been like an uncooked dough. It falls of the spoon like a thick soup and I can not allow my two young boys to eat what looks like uncooked eggs. To mention my children they have gone waiting for breakfast for 2 hours because the casserole would not cook the way I thought it was supposed to. If there are any hints to help me cook this correctly please let me know. I consider my self to be a decent cook and I am very disappointed that after two tries it still does not turn out!
