french toast casserole

I love having breakfast for dinner!!  It's always quick.  It's always easy. And it's always yummy!!

This recipe was super easy to make and I had everything on hand.  
Here's what you'll will need...

Cubed French Bread {I used leftover}
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups of milk
4 Tablespoons of sugar (divided)
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of margarine, softened
1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly butter an 8x8 in baking pan.  

Line the bottom of the pan with bread cubes.  In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons of sugar, salt and vanilla. {I sprinkled in a little cinnamon too.} Pour egg mixture over bread.  Dot with margarine and let it stand for 10 minutes.

Combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle over the top.  Bake in preheated oven about 45-50 minutes, until top is golden.  

Drizzle with warm syrup and serve with bacon.

Sounds yummy - may have to try it. About how much bread do you use? Wonder if the recipe could be doubled in a 9 1/2 x 13 pan or something so it could be big enough to take for a social thing...
