Overnight french toast casseroles are such a fabulous breakfast for busy mornings. All the prep work is done the night before so that all that is required of you come morning is to just pop it in the oven! How simple is that?!

Caramel Apple is my favorite fall flavor combo. As you can tell by my most recent fall recipes, this combo is a common occurrence at my house :) Which is why it a version needed to be added to my current list of overnight casseroles on this blog.

This recipe is bursting with apples and pockets of cream cheese. The syrup is down right amazing and is a complete must to get the full flavor effect that this recipe offers. Do not skip out on it!

If you are looking for a ridiculously yummy breakfast that requires minimal work, give this one a shot! You will be so glad you did!

    Love this recipe and can't wait to try it for a morning meeting I have with my club. However I am not clear on how it is an overnight casserole? The directions don't explain if it can be prepared totally the night before, or if the ingredients can just be assembled the eggs and milk added just before baking. It seems the eggs and milk would make it soggy overnight. Can you clarify?

      SO sorry about that. I missed typing it in. You cover and refrigerate overnight after you have poured the egg mixture into the bread and pressed down, right before the baking step :)

      I have made french toast casseroles before. Doing it overnight makes the bread softer but it has never made it soggy for me. When it cooks the eggs firm it up.

    Sounds so delicious. Thank you.

    It says this is an overnight french toast casserole. At which step do you refrigerate it overnight? Is it after you pour the egg/milk mixture over the bread cubes to let it soften them?

      Thanks! Making this recipe this weekend and wanted to make sure! Do I need to worry about the apples turning brown while it chills?

    3. Kathy

      Thanks! Making this for tomorrow!

      Will refrigerating it overnight make the apples turn brown or will they be okay in the egg mixture? Also, how many hours should I let it sit in the fridge? Trying to figure out when I should put it together. :-)

      do you peel the apples

  5. ash

    is it suppose to still be eggy after it cooks or how does the consistency suppose to be ?
