Easy Baked French Toast with Streusel Topping

I love French Toast. I love French Toast Casseroles. Or maybe what I should say, is that I love the flavor of French Toast…’cuz I do not love soggy bread. That mushiness it gets in the middle? Ewww. So, I guess I sort of like Cinnamon Toast, with syrup. Anywho, this Baked French Toast is awesome, b/c ONE, it has a streusel topping. I love, love, streusel. TWO, it’s not soggy! (If you like yours soggy, you can make it that way too.) And THREE, this version is lower in sugar and fat than lots of others.

 OH! AND you can make a whole bunch at once…so no individual dipping and flipping and cooking. score!

Easy Baked French Toast with Streusel Topping

1 loaf French bread (any good bread, sliced in 1 inch slices)
4 eggs (I used 2 eggs and 1 serving of Egg Beaters)
1 3/4 cup fat free milk
1/4 cup brown sugar substitute*
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch salt
Streusel Topping
1/4 cup brown sugar substitute*
1/2 cup flour (I used unbleached all-purpose)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 T butter, melted
(maybe a pinch of salt if using unsalted butter)
*I used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend which is a combination of brown sugar and Splenda artificial sweetener. I have also made my own blend of half stevia and half brown sugar. You can use all brown sugar if you prefer.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray. 
  • Arrange slices in a single layer in dish. 
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar/sugar substitute, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
  • Pour egg mixture over the bread. 
  • {At this point, you can cover and place in fridge overnight}
  • In a small bowl, mix together sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter (and salt if using) with a fork until it comes together and forms crumbles.
  • Sprinkle over bread and bake 35 – 40 minutes or until edges of bread are golden brown.

Enjoy for breakfast, brunch or dinner! We, of course, had ours for dinner (brinner) with a little sugar free syrup and turkey sausage. It was carb-o-licious!
