French Toast Casserole

If you are hosting overnight guests this holiday season, this recipe is a must! You can make this several days ahead of time, it’s packed with nutrition, it’s filling and maintains the sweet holiday spirit. This recipe cuts back on the cream and added sugar, while at the same time uses a whole grain loaf for added fiber, berries for vitamins and minerals, and some Greek yogurt for a protein boost!


  • 1 loaf of whole grain bread (an artisan loaf will have a nice crust for this recipe. Nuts and seed in bread will add flavor and texture) 
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • ½ cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup fresh mix berries
  • 4 Tbs maple syrup (topping)
  • 4 Tbs almond butter (topping)

Preheat oven to 350° F. Cut bread into 1- to 2-inch cubes.

Whisk eggs, milk, yogurt, vanilla, cinnamon and maple syrup in a large bowl until well incorporated. Add the cubed bread to the egg and milk, and mix and toss to evenly coat. Let sit for at least 5 minutes, up to overnight. Grease a 9-by-13 dish and add the contents of the bowl. Top with frozen berries. Bake for 30 minutes. Top with fresh berries, then drizzle the remaining maple syrup and almond butter on top. Serve and enjoy! Makes 8 servings.
