Stuffed Overnight French Toast Casserole
Entertaining for brunch has never been easier with this delicious Stuffed Overnight French Toast Casserole.
Imagine challah bread diced up and soaked with a delicious creamy egg mixture and then stuffed with maple peanut butter cream cheese mixture and berries. The dish comes together as it sets overnight in the fridge.
All you need to do the morning after is just bake and serve. How easy is that? I use this casserole are my “brunch-breakfast hack” when entertaining. Honestly, it’s so delicious that I can serve as a dessert with ice cream on the side.
And it doesn’t stop with the Stuffed Overnight French Toast Casserole. At the bottom of the post, you will 5 more breakfast hacks that will make your mornings easier.
Face it, in the morning we’re so busy with kids and work that giving them a good breakfast is almost impossible.
It’s frustrating since I’m sending them to school with just a plate of oatmeal on their tummy. Trough time and organization, I learned a few ways to quicken my breakfast prepping and now you can do it too.
Now back to my yummy breakfast casserole. I prefer to use Challah, Brioche, or any other eggy bread you have available. It’s ok if it’s a few days old, drier bread soaks up more liquid and makes a tastier recipe. It’s a good way to get rid of old bread.
For this Stuffed Overnight French Toast Casserole, I used the new Jif Breakfast Spreads available in 2 flavors: maple and cinnamon.
It’s the same flavor of Jif peanut butter you all know and love with added natural flavors. I used the maple flavor and it made my dish pop. For more great Jif ideas and morning hacks head over HERE.
