French Toast Casserole

This french toast casserole is a great way to use up stale bread, and a delicious start to a school day or weekend morning!  Added plus, mom doesn’t have to get up hours before everyone else to get a hearty breakfast on the table!   I buy day old texas toast for this and freeze what I don’t use in the casserole and use for croutons or crumbs. Any stale bread will work, but thick cut breads or Challah work best!

This recipe has a few options but try them all !  What a great way to start the day!
