Very kid-friendly! I made this one morning when I was craving French toast and came up with the idea to put bacon inside it somehow! Yummy! The measurements for the sugars and cinnamon can be adjusted to however one likes! Can top with pecans, confectioners' sugar, or whatever else is desired!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Scatter about 1/3 of the butter pats onto the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish and arrange 6 slices of bread in a single layer, overlapping as necessary, on top of the butter. Top bread slices with bacon slices.

  • Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar, and nutmeg over bacon slices. Scatter 1/3 of the butter pats over bacon and top with remaining bread slices.

  • Whisk milk, eggs, remaining cinnamon, remaining white sugar, remaining brown sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Pour over bread mixture into baking dish. Scatter remaining butter pats over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and set, 35 to 45 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

For me this was just OK hubby liked it more than me & would give it 4 stars. A couple of recommendations - melt some of the butter in the baking dish and butter the sides or it will stick. I used thick 'Texas Toast' style bread and that may not have been a good plan. The egg mixture didn't sink into the bread well and the bottom layer didn't get enough egg mixture while the sides were very eggy and stuck to the pan. I would suggest pouring half the egg mixture onto the bottom layer of bread and the rest over the top. The baking time was fine at 35 minutes.

I found the recipe to be a bit dry. Also I didn't like how the bacon turned out. Next time I will prep it my way by baking in the oven until crisp then chop it up and add it to the casserole. I still think it is a great idea! It just needs some "tweaking".
