Overnight Freezer French Toast

This is so easy to make and a family favorite! My kids love having breakfast for dinner. :) It's also quick and easy to make for the holidays or when family is in town. Thanks, Cara, for the recipe!

1/2 cup butter
12 slices Texas Toast
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice)
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 eggs
1.5 cups milk

Melt butter and pour in a 9x13 pan. Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon/pumpkin pie spice.

Whisk eggs, milk, and vanilla together.

Layer bottom of pan with 6 slices of bread, sprinkle with half the brown sugar mixture.

Layer last 6 slices of bread, pour egg mixture over all then sprinkle with remaining brown sugar.

Cover with foil and freezer or refrigerate overnight to use the next day.

To bake: Leave covered with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 more minutes (should be browned and set).

I made this for our weekly game night as a "breakfast for dinner" treat. I prepped it in the morning using challah bread with raisins in place of the Texas Toast and pumpkin spice. It was so scrumptious, and all our friends loved it. There was nothing left by the time the evening was over, and we had even added bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, and donuts on the side!
