How to serve Banana French Toast Casserole for brunch or breakfast

 

Can Banana French Toast Bake be Made Ahead of Time?

  • It can.  However, if you choose to make it the night before, using a sturdier bread like sour dough or an Italian or french loaf would work better (and not change the taste of the casserole too much).  Croissants are delicate and soak up the custard quickly.  They are at their best in this casserole when baked right away.

Ingredients

Banana Filling

  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 bananas

Bread

  • 4 large croissants, 6 inch

Custard

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 C half & half
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Topping

  • 1 C frosted corn flakes cereal
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit. Spray 2 quart casserole dish with non stick cooking spray.
  • In a microwave safe bowl make filling by heating 3/4 C brown sugar, 1 stick of butter and maple syrup in microwave using 45 second intervals, taking ingredients out and stirring after every interval, until butter is melted.
  • Add vanilla and cinnamon to butter mixture (caramel), stir well. Add bananas and toss until well coated. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, half & half, brown sugar and salt. Set aside.
  • Using a bread knife, cut croissants into 1-2 in cubes. Cover the bottom of the casserole dish with 1/2 of the bread cubes. Top with 1/2 of caramelized bananas. Use a spatula to work the bananas over all of the bread. Repeat layers. Pour the egg custard over all of the casserole, making sure to get it into all of the edges, nooks and crannies. Press bread down a little to make sure it is soaking up the custard. Let sit 5-10 minutes or until most of the custard has been absorbed.
  • Top with 1 C frosted corn flakes cereal. Pour 2 Tbsp melted butter over the corn flakes. Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the center is set. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving with maple syrup.

Notes

If corn flakes begin to brown, cover with foil with casserole bakes.
