Baked eggnog French toast with a sweet cinnamon and nutmeg streusel topping. This easy French toast casserole recipe can be made in advance-making it the perfect recipe for Christmas brunch.

Ingredients

For the French Toast:

  • 1 loaf French Bread
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups eggnog
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cut into pieces
  • Maple syrup-for serving optional

Instructions

  • 1. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Tear French bread into chunks, or cut into cubes, and evenly place in the pan.
  • 2. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, eggnog, sugar, vanilla extract, and nutmeg. Pour evenly over bread. Cover pan with saran wrap and store in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
  • 3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add butter pieces and cut into the dry mixture using a fork or your hands. Combine until the mixture resembles sand with a few pea sized chunks. Cover and store mixture in the refrigerator.
  • 4. When you’re ready to bake the French toast, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove French toast from refrigerator and sprinkle crumb mixture over the top. Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the French toast is set and golden brown.
  • 5. Serve warm with maple syrup, if desired.
