What is French toast overnight?
Last night’s French toast is versatile, easy, and a great way to feed the crowd a hot breakfast. You can make it savory or sweet, and you can make it the night before and bake it when you’re ready in the morning.
The French toast section is made of thick slices of bread soaked in egg batter. And the overnight part is the fact that the casserole must stand for at least 8 hours before baking. This special overnight peach French toast casserole is studded with juicy peaches and a sweet cinnamon topping.
- Bread: Use thick slices of French bread for the best texture.
- Egg whites: You can use a bowl of egg whites, or separate the whites yourself from 8 large eggs.
- Milk: You can use skim milk or almond milk.
- Vanilla Extract
- Peach: I recommend using sliced peaches, no added sugar. Fresh and frozen peaches will not work well.
- Dark Brown Sugar
- Heavy cream
- Shake Topping: Optional but it’s a great way to finish off peach french toast to serve!
How to Make Overnight French Toast
Be sure to check out the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
- Make a flat layer of bread slices in the pan.
- Beat the liquid ingredients and pour over the bread.
- Top it with peaches and sprinkle on top.
- Cover and chill overnight in the refrigerator (at least 8 hours).
- In the morning, place the French toast casserole on the table while heating the oven.
- Bake until cooked, serve and enjoy!
Yes! Frying multiple slices for multiple people can be very time consuming. Instead, bake a casserole of French toast, and you can feed everyone hassle-free!
This casserole takes about 50 minutes to bake in the oven at 350F. The main thing you want to check is that it is fully cooked and warmed up. You don’t want any runny eggs left behind.
We use thick slices of delicious French bread here for a reason: it absorbs the egg mixture better than other types of bread. If the bread is too soft or light, it may become soggy.
Other types of stone fruit (such as plums and apricots) can be easily substituted here.
Can I freeze a French toast casserole?
Yes! This pre-made french toast is also freezer-friendly. This is a great dish for the holidays and if you will be busy with other tasks, you can make it a few days in advance.
Prepare the entire casserole as instructed, bake, then freeze. Make sure it is tightly wrapped with aluminum foil (two layers).
Melt overnight in the fridge and reheat in the oven just before serving.
Can I use fresh or frozen peaches?
Fresh or frozen peaches are not the best choices for overnight French toast. Canned or canned peaches are ripe, so they are much softer and won’t turn brown when refrigerated overnight. So for this peach French toast recipe, I recommend sticking with the baked type.
- Be sure to spray the pan with non-stick spray before you start.
- When layering bread, you want as little space as possible between the pieces.
- Cover the plate with a tight-fitting lid, plastic wrap, or aluminum foil before refrigerating it.
- Let the casserole come to room temperature while you preheat the oven. It’s better if it’s not too cold when it comes in.
- Toast French toast without cover. If it starts to get too brown, you can cover it for the last few minutes.
- You can use peaches in water or syrup. Make sure they are completely drained. Fresh peaches won’t work in this recipe as they will take more time to bake and soften.
- Place leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
- To reheat, warm peach French toast in the oven at 350 degrees F until hot.
This overnight French toast recipe is super easy and convenient. And topped off with peaches and cream, it was amazingly delicious!
