BEST BANANAS FOSTER FRENCH TOAST CASSEROLE

This recipe was deceptively easy and turned out beautifully. It would be a great brunch dish for company!

This was good. I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller baking dish. I buttered and floured the baking dish and had no trouble removing it.

I really loved this recipe because of how easy it was to put together and you can put it together the night before. I did use milk in place of the heavy whipping cream because it’s what I had on hand. I think it turned out great even though I used milk. I used regular bread too.

This was delicious! A weekend splurge definitely. The only thing I would change would be to spray the pan with cooking spray before adding the ingredients. When I inverted it to serve, part of it stuck to the pan.
