There's no easier way to make French toast for a crowd than baked French toast. In fact, making a French toast bake is probably the easiest way to make French toast, period. All you have to do to make a French toast breakfast casserole is assemble all of the ingredients in one oven-friendly dish, let it sit for a few hours so that all the flavors can meld together, and then pop it in the oven until fully baked. French toast casseroles are perfect for meal prepping; you can make a big batch of French toast casserole at the beginning of the week and heat up slices in the microwave or toaster oven each morning, as needed.

But not all baked French toast recipes are for a French toast casserole. There are also baked French toast muffins, baked French toast slices, even baked French toast sticks. 

These recipes, however, are just as easy to make as a regular overnight breakfast casserole. Plus, these French toast casserole recipes are super adaptable. There are some basic ingredients you need for any French toast bake recipe—including eggs, milk, sugar, and, of course, some kind of thick-cut bread. But you can add whatever toppings you want.
