French Toast Casserole - Easy recipe for a Dutch Oven or at Home

 

We recently served this French Toast Casserole recipe for our guests at an Easter brunch.

It was so popular, I decided to try it in a Dutch Oven and discovered it was an even better Camping Recipe

For best results soak the bread and egg mixture in a sealed container overnight to allow the egg mixture flavors to blend with the bread.

If you are making the Dutch Oven French Toast Casserole recipe, you can use a dutch oven liner for easier cleanup.

In a conventional oven, bake at 350 degrees checking for doneness after 35 minutes.
