It’s no secret that I love breakfast foods… I mean REALLY love them.  Although I’m so not a morning person.  I’ve always been in awe of people that can wake up in a great mood, ready to take on the day.  I am pretty much exactly the opposite lol.  Cranky, tired, and absolutely not in the mood for cooking.

MY LATEST RECIPES

But my family still needs to eat right?  That’s why I love these overnight breakfast recipes!  So far I’ve shared my bourbon cinnamon French toast casserole and my overnight breakfast strata, and I’ve gotten such great feedback from you about those recipes!

Even though summer is over, I still crave s’mores flavors… so I thought it would be fun to add those flavors to a French toast casserole!  And man is it ever delicious!!

To make it even better, I use Promised Land Dairy Midnight Chocolate Milk instead of a traditional white milk.  The extra chocolatey flavor is spectacular!  Have you ever tried the Midnight Chocolate Milk?  It’s smooth, rich, creamy and is loaded with natural chocolate flavor made from the highest quality cocoa.  Plus, it literally tastes like melted chocolate ice cream!

I’ve never been a fan of generic chocolate milk… it just never tasted quite flavorful enough.  But this Promised Land Dairy Midnight Chocolate milk is simply amazing, I can’t stop drinking it!

I did manage to save a bit to make this recipe though, and I’m so glad I did.  Normally I make French toast casserole with whole white milk, but if you’ve never tried it with chocolate, you really need to give it a shot!

My favorite bread to use is a crusty sourdough or French, but a challah is fantastic as well.  Around here, fresh baked challah bread isn’t all that easy to find, unfortunately.  Maybe one day I’ll get ambitious and make my own!

To make this French toast casserole, just whip it up the night before you want to eat it, then cover and refrigerate.  The next morning, uncover and bake.  Easy peasy right?!

While this casserole is perfect for any old regular weekday/weekend breakfast, it’s amazing for a holiday breakfast or brunch!  Your guests will absolutely love you for serving this to them, and I guarantee you, they’ll be asking for the recipe!

Whip this French toast casserole up for your next weekend breakfast, and don’t forget to pick up a few bottles of Promised Land Dairy Midnight Chocolate milk!!

Recipe Notes

My loaf of sourdough bread is 16 oz, so I use 3/4 of the loaf and use the rest for some amazing grilled cheese sandwiches!
