Cranberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast from Nutritionist Reviews // “Cranberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast is the perfect make-ahead breakfast that is full of flavor and perfect to serve to a crowd!”

Butternut Squash French Toast from Edible Perspective // “The squash flavor isn’t super detectable, but it definitely adds to the outer layer, allowing the bread to become a bit more coated and thick than typical French toast, and less egg-heavy. The squash-apple topping really brings things full circle, adding a bit of crunch and sweetness from the apple and creaminess from the squash.

Spiced Pear French Toast Casserole from Lemons and Zest // “The thing about baking French Toast is how easy it is. Tear up a bunch of bread, pour egg mixture on top, soak for a few minutes and then bake. That’s about it! Less mess and less work than regular French Toast and almost dessert like with a bread pudding like texture. If you love bread pudding, then you will love it. And everyone at the table for sure!”

Nutella French Toast from Some Day I’ll Learn // “I like to use a LOT of batter for each piece of bread so it gets nice and fluffy. Plus, I use gluten-free bread which tends to be a bit on the dense side. Lots and lots of butter in the pan helps this Nutella french toast get a nice, golden crust.”
