Sourdough French Toast Bake

Sharing is Caring

This Sourdough French Toast Bake is a delicious bread, egg, and milk mixture baked up into a casserole style french toast. It is the perfect way to use up left over loaves of sourdough bread.

If you make bread often then you know that there is many times when the bread starts to harden and you begin getting creative in an effort to use it up. For this we make croutons, bread crumbs and strata quite often in our house. This recipe was born out of that same idea. Although you can use fresh cubed bread for this as well. It is a fun one to make up for brunches so I have in fact gotten a standard french bread loaf at the market to make it. No matter what you use, I am sure you will enjoy it just the same.

What You Will Need To Make This Sourdough French Toast Bake

8 cups (416g) cubed sourdough bread (this is a great way to use left over sourdough bread)

1 tsp (2.6g) cinnamon

6 eggs

1 cup (240g) of milk

1 tsp (4.2g) vanilla

6 tbsp (84g) butter

Cinnamon and Sugar Topping

2 tbsp (25g) organic sugar

1 tsp (2.6g) cinnamon

Directions

Cube the sourdough bread into bite sized pieces and place them into a large bowl.

In a separate bowl mix together the 6 eggs, milk, vanilla, 1 tsp of cinnamon and 4 tbsp of melted butter. *Allow the melted butter to come to room temp before adding it to the milk and egg mixture.

Mix well and pour over the cubed bread in bowl. Allow the bread to absorb the mixture for about 5 minutes. While the bread sits, heat your oven to 350℉/177℃.

During this time, place your skillet on the stove top and melt the other 2 tbsp of butter making sure to spread it evenly across the pan as it melts.
