This week, Chef Jeff Abate from Aux Delices Foods, shows Tina Redwine how to make French toast casserole.
French Toast Casserole
2 pound brioche bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
12 eggs
2 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
½ cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Streusel Topping
6 ounces butter, soft
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons flour
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
Place the cubed brioche in a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, brown sugar, spices and vanilla. Pour the cream mixture over the bread and allow to sit, refrigerated, at least 2 hours or overnight.
To make the topping:
Combine all of the ingredients by hand until the streusel
reaches a pebble-like consistency. Sprinkle over the top of the casserole.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Pour the bread mixture into a greased 13x9x 2 pan. Bake for 75-90 minutes or until the center feels springy to the touch.
Serves 10-12
