King’s Hawaiian Bread French Toast Casserole Recipe
King's Hawaiian Bread French Toast Casserole Recipe
Years ago I lived in Hawaii. In fact, I graduated from high school in Hawaii and went to one year of college before moving to Atlanta where I now call home.
I loved Hawaii and still miss it to this day. In high school, I was introduced to King's Hawaiian Bread. We used to sell the King's Hawaiian Bread as fundraisers at school. I grew to love then and was excited to share it with my family years later.
My middle child is seven and King's Hawaiian rolls are her absolute favorite bread in the world. She eats it plain and would take this bread over dessert any day.
My family loves to have breakfast for dinner once a month or so and my kids always ask me to make my toast casserole. I only make it with King's Hawaiian Round Bread and it one of my favorite breakfast dishes. I even make extra to freeze and enjoy later.
I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine.
KING'S HAWAIIAN BREAD FRENCH TOAST RECIPE
- 1 King's Hawaiian Round Bread loaf
- 5 large eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon together until well blended.
3. Cut the loaf of King's Hawaiian bread into six large slices. Turn and cut again so you get chunks of bread like this:
4. Use the butter to grease a baking pan. I use a round Wilton UltraGold 10 Inch Round Pan.
5. Grab three to four pieces of bread and dip into mixture. I like to thoroughly coat the bread so nothing looks dry.
6. Place the coated pieces into the pan. I put all pieces next to each leaving little room between.
7. Drizzle the remaining mixture over your uncooked casserole.
8. In a small bowl, combine the remaining brown sugar and cinnamon. Generously sprinkle over the casserole. This makes a nice, crunchy, sweet topping.
9. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Inside should be solid. I use a wooden skewer to test (stick in it and make certain it comes out clean).
Top should be golden brown and look like this:
10. Remove casserole and let it sit for about 10 minutes to settle.
11.Cut the casserole into 3-inch squares. Top with butter and syrup.
12.Serve and enjoy!
This is one of my favorite recipes to share with friends and family.
