Why Make Apple French Toast Casserole?
You may be wondering why you should make this dish. Well, when it comes to a casserole, you may want to switch up your options now and again. Of course, baking casseroles can be a hit with the family or they can turn out to not be a favorite. When I first fed this to my kids for breakfast, they were SO excited and it has been asked for again and again!
Ingredients for This Casserole
Are you curious about which ingredients go in the casserole? It’s time to start gathering all of the ingredients to make this dish. This casserole uses simple every day ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
- I bet you can’t wait to use up those loaves of day-old bread. Finally, you have something to do with the bread. Don’t forget to cube it. Of course, you can also make your own yeast or no yeast bread, too!
- I use a lot of eggs in my recipes, as you can see. This casserole calls for ten eggs! I try and buy eggs when they are on sale for this very reason.
- This recipe also calls for cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla which are the best ingredients for making french toast.

How to Store French Toast Casserole
Once you’ve made this Apple French Toast Casserole, you don’t want it to go to waste. Choose a container that is airtight to store this casserole in the fridge. You can keep it in the refrigerator for 3-5 days before it goes bad. If you choose to freeze it, double wrap it in Saran Wrap or foil, to keep it as fresh as possible. You can freeze this casserole for up to two months.
What to Serve with This Casserole?
In my family, casseroles are designed to keep everyone full. However, it never hurts to make a protein as a side with a casserole. You can make bacon, sausage, or turkey.
If you need a drink side to go with it, then go with coffee, hot chocolate, milk, orange juice, apple juice, or even water.
I feel as though this French toast casserole serves as both a dessert and a breakfast. Once you make this for your family, it will be requested that you make it again. There is only one thing left to do and that’s to enjoy it. What’s your favorite part of this recipe? Leave a comment below.
