What We’re Eating: Make-Ahead French Toast Casserole

Image Source: I Can Teach My Child

I’ve been looking for some simple recipes for dishes to make for MOPS brunch. Usually I sign up to bring fruit, since it’s easy and we love fruit. 🙂 But I wanted to try some new things this year. This French Toast Casserole recipe came into my inbox, and it looked simple enough.



I personally don’t know how this tasted because I brought it to MOPS, and I got called to work in the 2’s room. When I came back at the end of the meeting, it was all gone. I got a small piece that got stuck to the side. It tasted pretty good, but at that point, it had been the previous night’s dinner since I last eaten, so anything would have tasted pretty good. Looks like everyone at MOPS gobbled it up though. I will have to make it again.
