Overnight French Toast Souffle

Overnight French Toast Souffle - Perfect for any holiday or morning with the family. Quick and beyond delicious!

Overnight French Toast Souffle is the perfect breakfast for any occasion! Considering the season we are in, this would be great for Christmas morning.

Of course I found this one on Pinterest(by Chef in Training).   I was not the first in my family to make the Overnight French Toast Souffle. I sent the recipe to my mom.  She made it one morning and brought it to our get together on a Sunday morning. I LOVED it! I decided I would give it a try as well.

What makes this breakfast so wonderful is all the prep work is done the night before. In the morning you simply put it in a preheated oven and wait 30 to 40 min and viola! A very amazing breakfast!

I was glad that the boys enjoyed it too!

The day before, I cut up the cinnamon bread into 1 inch or so squares and put them back into the bag they came in, just to save time later when I would actually put the whole thing together.

Any cinnamon bread would work fine with this. I would venture to say, if you love raisins,  that would probably work great too.

Getting the bottom sauce ready was rather simple. You cook it until it looks somewhat like caramel. Then pour it on the bottom of the dish. (You do not need to grease it)

breakfast Then begin to layer.

First a layer of bread, then cut chunks of cream cheese, then another layer of bread.


Only showing the first two layers in this picture.

After all the layers are done, you beat up the egg, cinnamon, and cream. I recommend using a beater.


Pour over the ingredients, then press down on the bread with your hands (or spatula 😉 ) to get everything all moist.


Cover with foil and place in refrigerator until morning.

In the morning when the oven is preheated, put french toast in and cook.

It is heavenly!

      This one is a hit over here in our family. :) Mom’s made it 3 times I think, and I’ve made it once. I have all the ingredients to make it again when my husband is off work. Mom did a different one for Sunday morning this time, with Pumpkin bread similar to the cinnamon bread and a few other things. Was pretty good. So there are options with this dish too.

    It sure was a good one! I am going to make a pumpkin one with pumpkin swirl bread and then use pumpkin pie spice. I will bring it on Sunday. Yummy!
