  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Cereal & Milk French Toast Casserole with Salted Frosted Flake Topping
  • 1 tablespoon softened butter
  • 1 pound French loaf (cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes)
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup spiced rum
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Crunchy Cereal Topping
  • 3 cups frosted corn flake cereal
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Make Ahead: butter a 9inch x 13inch casserole dish (or 12-inch high-sided oven-safe skillet) and arrange the cubed bread in the dish.
  • In a large bowl, add the eggs, heavy cream, milk, rum, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, and mix until smooth.  Pour the mixture over the bread, pressing on the bread to submerge it in the custard. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours and up to 12. 
  • For the Crunchy Cereal Topping: preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cereal, butter, bacon and salt, and stir to combine. Spread the mixture evenly over the casserole.
  • Place in the oven to bake until the topping is golden and the bread cubes peeking out of the top are crusty and toasty, about 50-to 55 minutes.
