How to Make Overnight French Toast Casserole
The idea with this overnight french toast casserole is to prepare it the night before, let it sit in the refrigerator, then bake and eat it the next morning. This saves you from having to get up early to do all the preparations for this french toast bake. Instead, do most of it the night before, and really all you have to do in the morning is heat it up.
- Prep the casserole the night before by layering the bread, apple filling, and egg mixture
- Cover french toast casserole and set in the refrigerator overnight
- In the morning, set the casserole out while the oven preheats
- Make the apple spice butter & drizzle over the breakfast casserole
- Bake the french toast at 350°F for 40-50 minutes.
Can you make french toast in the oven?
Yes! You can make french toast in the oven with a french toast bake recipe like this. It’s the same flavor and the same great texture, but everything mixes and bakes together in a casserole dish. Much easier (in my opinion) to make it for a bunch of people, rather than making french toast one by one on the stovetop.
Can you reheat baked french toast?
Yes, this overnight french toast casserole recipe can be reheated later on. If you have leftovers, cover the dish with foil and store it in the fridge for up to a couple of days. You can then reheat the breakfast casserole in the oven at 350°F for about 20 minutes (or until warm).
This Apple Pie Overnight French Toast Casserole recipe is one of my favorite breakfast recipes to serve when we have guests staying with us (like holidays or Christmas morning). I want to make an amazing breakfast, but I don’t want to get up super early to do it. This baked french toast really is the perfect dish for anyone who is not a morning person. But everyone will absolutely love it!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing, Kristen!
IF you’re super lazy could you use apple pie filling? If so how would the recipe need to be adjusted? Thinking this would be a great Easter morning treat😁
I would make it just the same :)
Hi….this sounds yummy. Can you use canned apple pie filing instead of the apples and spices? Thanks
Yes, of course!
I made this for a morning playdate and so glad I did. All the moms loved it and it was so quick and easy to make.
Oh what a great time to make this! Glad everyone loved it!
I am by myself so I scaled this down ~ 1/3 and used a 1 qt Corning casserole. I had some potatoe rolls leftover so I used those. I used only about 3 T. of sugar for the whole recipe…otherwise this would be waaaay too sweet for me. I topped it with maple syrup and whipped cream. Perfect!
You don’t need to buy pie spice…that’s just cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice…grind it fresh if you’ve got it.
This would be fun to try in the summer when peaches are ripe…really, any pie you can imagine (pecan!) would work.
Great tips, thank you!
An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who had been conducting a little
homework on this. And he actually bought me
lunch due to the fact that I discovered it for him…
lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this
matter here on your internet site.
thanks for the share recipes with us.
Does it matter if the bread isn’t exactly a day old? Like what if it’s a couple days?
It should be fine. As long as the bread is still good, its fine for it to be a little crunchy. It will soak up all the liquid and work great :)
Another way to make a familiar dish. I think it will be very attractive. I will do it for my family’s dinner. Thanks for your guidance a lot!
