Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

C'mon Readers, There's No Such Thing!

Are you still enjoying the holidays? We've got a few more days of recklessness where dieting & nutrition are concerned.  Have you had your fill yet?

Delicious French Toast Casserole with cinnamon, vanilla and a secret ingredient that's about as healthy as french toast can get while still being a fast and easy breakfast to feed a crowd.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 1 large loaf brioche bread (Challah or Italian works also)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (almond milk with vanilla is good too)
  • 1/2 cup Half and Half
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (up to 1 cup is OK and no pulp is recommended)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract (to taste if vanilla almond milk is used)
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp melted butter
  • Maple Syrup


  1. Tear bread into pieces slightly larger than bite size. Place in 3 quart casserole dish (9 x 13 is fine)
  2. In  medium bowl, whip eggs, milk, half and half, orange juice, vanilla, butter and cinnamon together then pour evenly over bread
  3. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight to allow the bread to soak up the mixture
  4. In the morning preheat oven to 350°F. and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until top is browned
  5. Remove from oven and drizzle with maple syrup
  6. Serve warm and Enjoy
  7. It's supposed to serve 6 to 8 guests but that never happens!

Good morning, Kevin J. May I made that last year for my family, and I WAS IN PAIN WATCHING THEM EAT IT.... I felt soooo guilty feeding them that type of food...I ate 2 boiled eggs... they requested it....  soooo unhealthy.

Good morning Kevin. Love it! My first thought was that Barbara Todaro would not approve. And true to form she did not! Except, she made it for everyone else. So, maybe not so bad if only once in a while. Enjoy your day!

You tricked us, I was hoping that you were sharing a recipe from Barbara Todaro , but I know she would never approve of me eating something like that, haha.

What a wonderful recipe, and we pass.  We both are not fond of sugary treats with a few exceptions:  In Paris ,eclair and croissant.  In Italy cornetto con crema, in Torino hazelnut gelato...too far to head over!  Cheers!  A

It's so hard to keep my sugar and flour demons at bay!  I think resistance is futile!
