The best recipe for French toast casserole, an easy and delicious breakfast!



3/4 cup brown sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened

18 slices brioche

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 1/2 cups whole milk

6 large eggs

2 oz dark rum

Confectioner’s sugar, as required


  1. Assemble your ingredients first. Take a bowl and mix brown sugar, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spread the softened butter on a 13×9-inch baking pan or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Spread 3 tablespoons of the sugar mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Now place 6 slices of bread on top to cover the pan evenly.
  3. Take one and a half tablespoons of melted butter and brush over the bread slices. Sprinkle 3 more tablespoons of the sugar mixture over all pieces evenly.
  4. Make another layer of 6 bread slices and repeat the brushing of butter and sprinkling of sugar mixture. Place the remaining 6 pieces of bread on top and brush with one and a half tablespoons of butter.
  5. In a separate bowl, use a whisk to mix eggs with milk and dark rum until well combined. Pour this mixture over the bread slices, making sure every slice gets soaked in egg mixture.
  6. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar mixture or any topping you prefer (like nuts or seeds) before transferring your baking dish to an oven rack.
  7. Bake until slightly puffed and golden brown in color. It will take nearly 30 minutes to bake a perfect casserole.
  8. Remove from oven and brush over again with the remaining melted butter. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Now you can sprinkle a dusting of confectioner’s sugar before serving.


If you’re preparing this for the next day, stop after step 5. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Remove from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking time and uncover casserole to let it come to room temperature. Resume from step 6.
