What is an Overnight French Toast Casserole?
French toast casseroles are versatile, easy, and a great way to feed a hot breakfast to a crowd. You can make them savory or sweet, and you can make them the night before and bake them when you are ready in the morning.
The French toast part is made from thick slices of bread soaked in an eggy batter. And the overnight part is the fact that the casserole needs to stand for at least 8 hours before baking.
This particular overnight French toast is studded with juicy, peaches and a sugary cinnamon topping.
Can I freeze Peaches and Cream Overnight French Toast?
Yes! It’s a great dish for holidays and if you are going to be elbow deep in other tasks, you can make it days in advance. Prepare the entire casserole, bake it in advance, and freeze it. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and rewarm it in the oven just before serving.
Can I Use Fresh Peaches?
Fresh or frozen peaches aren’t the best choice. Canned or jarred peaches have already been cooked, so they’re much softer and won’t turn brown when they are chilled overnight. For this recipe, stick with the jarred type of peaches.
