French Toast Casserole

When I posted my Earth Day Lunch and mentioned that I make a French Toast Casserole with the bread left overs I have from making my sandwiches, some of you asked for the recipe.
So, here it is :)

French Toast Casserole

5 cups of cubed bread
(= about one gallon sized ziploc bag full)
4 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup of pancake mix
1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in your casserole dish.
(just put the casserole dish with the butter into the oven for a couple of minutes :)

In large bowl mix beaten eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons of sugar, salt and vanilla together.

Then add 1/3 cup of pancake mix and mix well.

Carefully add bread to mixture and coat well.
(You can also add bread to casserole dish and pour the milk-egg mixture over it. If you do, let the dish stand for a couple of minutes until all the liquid is absorbed. I like tossing the bread - even though it is messy - because it coats the bread faster :)

Add to buttered casserolle dish.

Cut remaining butter into small pieces and sprinkle of the French Toast Casserole, then
sprinkle with remaining sugar and cinnamon to taste (I add the rest of the sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon).

Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 - 20 minutes or until brown and crispy.

I serve mine with applesauce or fruit and we never have left overs :)
