Peaches and Cream Overnight French Toast Casserole

I know you wouldn't normally think of this as tailgate food but if you read the previous post you'll see we now have an oven for tailgate!!!!

So at the 1pm games we start tailgating pretty early (before 9am).  So folks are rolling into the lot hungry since they've been prepping and driving down first thing.  What would be nice to start off the morning??  A breakfast casserole.

I was on Pinterest and found this recipe from  It looked scrumptious so I made it for Easter morning breakfast since I was on vacation with the kids.

So when I make this next time I will sprinkle each layer with cinnamon for a little extra taste.  Even my 86 year old grandmother was going back for seconds so i think that a bunch of hungry tailgaters would love this.



  • 1 8-oz. loaf French bread, sliced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 15-oz. cans sliced peaches packed in juice, drained
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar (I used light brown sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  1.  Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Arrange bread in a tight, flat layer in dish.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with milk, sugar and vanilla until blended; pour over bread. Arrange peaches on top and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
  3. Remove baking dish from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°F. Pour cream into a small pan; bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Drizzle over peaches and bake, uncovered, until casserole is lightly browned on top and just cooked through, 45 to 55 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

This was just a yummy concoction!!!
