Did you know today is National French Toast day? I feel like it totally should have been over the weekend because it’s Monday and all and who has time to make french toast on a Monday? Not I! In fact, I’m packing my bags and headed to Poland and possibly the Czech Republic for the week to indulge in some Christmas markets! I’d love for you to follow along with my trip on Instagram, it’s going to be amazing!
But even though it’s a Monday and everyone is back to work after a long holiday weekend, there’s no reason you can’t make Tuesday extra special by prepping this Gingerbread French Toast Bake Casserole tonight for tomorrow morning! I promise it will make the day a whole lot more enjoyable!
Gingerbread is one of my favorite flavors of the season! I’m not much for peppermint, though you’ll never see me turn down a slice of my Peppermint Cocoa Cake! But there’s something completely cozy about the sweet and spicy blend of gingerbread that screams Christmas to me!
And even though most of us enjoy gingerbread in the form of cookies or cake, it makes a for killer holiday breakfast too! Oh and a pretty amazing sugar scrub that will leave your skin feeling amazing and makes a great gift!
This Gingerbread French Toast Bake Casserole is super easy to whip up and the best part is that you can prep it way ahead of time and bake it just before you’re ready to indulge! It’s made with a milk and egg base just like french toast, but there’s also butter, molasses, maple syrup, and tons of spices that have been added to the mix that the french bread slices are soaked in. They have to soak for at least an hour, but then you just bake for about 20 to 25 minutes and you’re left with a warm and delightful breakfast casserole! Don’t forget to top it with butter, confectioner’s sugar, and maple syrup for a crazy-delicious finish!
