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.
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)
First a layer of bread, then cut chunks of cream cheese, then another layer of bread.
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!
My family enjoys this french toast a bunch! Just writing this post makes me want to whip it up again for tomorrow morning. 😉
