Savory French Toast Casserole Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Line the 6 bread slices in the bottom of the pan (cutting the bread in half if needed to make it fit), slightly overlapped in one layer. Set aside.
  2. Add cooking spray to a nonstick sauté pan. Sauté the mushrooms for 7 minutes, or until liquid is reduced and mushrooms are starting to caramelize.
  3. Add the onion and thyme and sauté 3 more minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, milk, salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the mushroom mixture over the top of the bread in the prepared pan and spread evenly.
  6. Pour the egg mixture over the bread and mushroom mixture and press gently to ensure the bread soaks up the liquid.
  7. Sprinkle the goat cheese over the casserole and bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Cut into 8 squares to serve.

Chef Tip: Serve this casserole with a side of green salad.
