French Toast
  • 1 loaf whole wheat crusty bread
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
Crumb Topping
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 stick cold butter, cubed
  1. Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan. You can either cube the bread or tear it into chunks. Then spread evenly into your pan.
  2. Crack the eggs into a small bowl, add the sugar and vanilla extract, and whisk thoroughly. In a medium bowl, measure out the milk, add the sour cream and egg mixture and whisk thoroughly.
  3. Pour mixture evenly over the bread.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix whole wheat flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add butter cubes and cut them into the dry mixture until mixture resembles fine pebbles.
  5. Place the crumb topping into a plastic bag. Cover the french toast pan with plastic wrap, foil, or a silpat. Place both into the fridge until ready to cook.
  6. When you're ready to bake the casserole, preheat oven to 350 F. Remove casserole from the fridge and sprinkle crumb mixture over the top evenly. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the french toast is cooked to your liking.
  7. Serve and top with butter and drizzle with maple syrup.
