Overnight French Toast Casserole

Alieen Clark
All the magic happens with this French toast casserole overnight. The crusty French bread soaks in the egg mixture making a delightful custard that cooks up perfectly in the morning. The bread type is important for this recipe. A less crusty bread will fall apart and not have the chewy texture that makes Overnight French Toast Casserole so delicious.
