The truth is, I don’t remember the last time I cooked a homemade breakfast on a weekday. It’s very possible that it’s never happened… until this morning, that is. That’s because this super easy Overnight Maple French Toast recipe allows you to prepare everything the night before, then just pop it in the oven 30 minutes before you’re ready to eat. It’s easier than a bowl of oatmeal!
Overnight Maple French Toast is also perfect for a brunch, a family reunion, the holidays…basically anything where you have to serve a large group of people. Instead of traditional french toast, which is cooked piece by piece, this recipe bakes all the slices together in one big delicious pan. Just make sure you have this link handy because EVERYONE will want the recipe, guaranteed.

I used French Baguette, as opposed to traditional French bread, so I needed 1 1/2 loaves to fill my 13 x 9 pan.
