A simple and filling French Toast Casserole recipe is a wonderful dish to serve guests the morning after Thanksgiving!
Actually, Thanksgiving around here this is year is going to be a very quiet one. However in years past, we’ve hosted holidays where it wasn’t just the day of to worry about feeding people, it was the entire weekend! After cooking all day on Thanksgiving, I try to find the most simple solutions to feed a crowd for the breakfast after Thanksgiving. French Toast Casserole is one of my favorite recipes for a quick and easy breakfast.
- Avocado Breakfast Casserole
- Homemade Copycat Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls
- Simple Spinach Quiche
- Breakfast Pizza
All of these recipes can be made in a pinch and baked and served to your guests the next morning! So very easy!
I hope you all have a most wonderful Thanksgiving. I am absolutely thankful to each and every one of you for visiting Dine & Dish, commenting and just being there! It means so much to me.
Have a great day full of tasty food and remember to count your blessings! We have a lot to be thankful for.
