Equipment

  • Casserole Baking Dish

Ingredients

  • 16 oz French Bread
  • 6 Eggland's Best Large Eggs
  • 2 cups Silk Almond Milk
  • 2 tbsps granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Topping

  • 4 tbsps unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsps light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease a small casserole dish. Mine is 10.5" by 7.5"
  • Cube your Italian bread into small chunks using a knife.
  • Crack eggs into a large mixing bowl. Add in milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, extract, salt, and sugar.
  • Whisk until combined.
  • Pour over cubed bread chunks.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 35-45 minutes. Since bread types vary, check at the 35 minute mark. The top should be spring and the inside should be fully baked. A butter knife inserted into the center of the bake should be clean when removed.

Notes

Whole milk or half and half can also be used and will produce a richer taste. 
Optional Toppings 
  • Maple Syrup
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Candied Walnuts
  • Pecans
  • Cranberries
  • Fresh Fruit

This casserole should be refrigerated if there are leftovers. To reheat, cut your portion out and microwave until warmed. For best results, you can also warm for 10-15 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. This will ensure any crispy outer portions crisp up nicely.
