Classic French Toast Casserole


  • 1 loaf of bread, cut into ¾ inch slices
  • 2 cups cream plus 1 cup milk (or 3 cups milk)
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp spiced rum (optional)
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup Sue Bee® honey plus 1/8 cup (divided)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup


Whisk together eggs, cream, milk, 1/4 cup honey, rum (optional), vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and salt.

Coat each piece of bread in the egg mixture, then place into a buttered casserole dish, overlapping.

Pour the rest of the egg mixture over the bread, being careful to get plenty in between the slices.

Top with chopped walnuts and bake or cover and refrigerate overnight.

Once ready to enjoy, preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 35-45 minutes, until well set.

Let rest for 5 minutes and top with 1/8 cup reserved honey and ¼ cup maple syrup. Serve.
