Successful Together: Banana Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Banana Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

It all started when Lorin shared a recipe with me for French Toast Casserole :)
Recipe can easily be multiplied to serve more, or to make a head to freeze and reheat later.
Original recipe credit goes to: Healthy Tipping Point

Ingredients:
6 Slices Light White Bread
4 large eggs
1 tbs vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tbs cinnamon
1 medium banana (peeled and sliced or mushed. I mushed mine)
1/4 cup raisins

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375. Liberally spray baking dish, I used an 8x8 square.
Cube bread in to chunks, dump in to prepared dish. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, milk, vanilla , cinnamon and banana (if mushed. If sliced/chopped wait to stir in when you mix in  the raisins.) Once mixture is well combined, pour over the bread cubes and stir until all bread is coated. Carefully fold in the raisins (and banana if you didnt mush it), until well combined.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until cooked through. Original recipe called for 20 minutes, and I think that would be appropriate if you sliced the bananas, but since I mushed mine, it added more liquid-ish and needed more time. Just keep a check on it every 5 minutes past 20.

Serve and enjoy!
