This Cardamom French Toast Casserole is perfect for family get-togethers over the holidays. It’s a fun twist on your classic French toast plus it’s super easy to make and serves a ton of people. The cardamom gives it little something extra because it’s fancier than cinnamon but if you’re not a huge fan you can limit what you use or replace with cinnamon. Also a comment on the bread- use fresh bread from a bakery not packaged. I used a millet flaxseed bread which was a little too healthy tasting- white bread would be best to please a crowd.
The french toast casserole is also a great option for food prep. I made it for myself and my husband and we warmed up the leftovers for breakfast during the week. In fact I’m wishing I had some to enjoy this morning. Do you have to cook for a lot of people this holiday season? I’ve never cooked Christmas dinner but I’ve always helped my mom out in the kitchen. I am definitely planning to make this French toast casserole to enjoy with my mom, husband, and sisters and you should do- everyone will be impressed when you use the word cardamom and they will love it!
What do you like better French toast or pancakes? I would probably say pancakes for myself- unless it’s stuffed French toast!
