Overnight French Toast Casserole

My husband’s favorite food is breakfast food.  He loves a good breakfast casserole.  This overnight french toast casserole is one of our favorites.

This overnight french toast casserole tastes like a cross between bread pudding and french toast.  It is so yummy and easy because you put it together the night before.  Would be great for mother's day brunch.

Doesn’t that look delicious?  It  tastes like a cross between French toast and bread pudding.  The pecan pralines give it a lovely crunch and are the perfect topping.

Make overnight french toast casserole for brunch.  So yummy!

What I love most about this casserole {besides the taste of course} is that it is a great make ahead meal.  You need to put it in the fridge for a while before it is baked.  You can either make it the night before and refrigerate it overnight, or make it in the morning and refrigerate it for dinner that night.
