I served this for overnight guests, and it was wonderful. It was so easy to prepare and very tasty. I love that you can make it the night before and just bake it the next morning. I misread the last part of the recipe that said to remove it from the baking dish and put it on baking sheets to bake. I just left it in the baking dish, and it turned out great--and fewer dishes to clean. The only thing I would do differently is to lightly butter the baking dish.
Overnight Oven-Baked French Toast

This was excellent! I have tried other oven-baked french toast recipes that ended in disappointment, but even my husband (who doesn't normally like french toast) enjoyed this one. I thought it was great! The pieces absorbed almost all the liquid overnight and puffed up so nicely in the oven. I used Pepperidge Farm french toast and sprinkled some cinnamon over the pieces before baking. Will definitely make again - for just our family or for company!

The bread soaked up all the egg mixture overnight and had great flavor. Would be great for guests, since you just pop it in the oven and forget about it. Really puffs up beautifully while cooking.

I've been looking for an overnight french toast recipe for a long time. This is may be it! Easy to prepare - especially for overnight guests. Isn't soggy or overly sweet like some recipes and tastes great. I followed the recipe as printed except I sprinkled with cinnamon before baking. I like the idea of baking it in the pan it soaks overnight in. Will try that next time.
