Ingredients

  • 1 16 ounce loaf French bread
  • 8 eggs beaten
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup sugar

For the Topping

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup butter cut into small cubes

Instructions

  • Tear bread into bite-sized pieces, and place half in a greased 9"x13" baking dish. Set aside the other half.
  • For the topping: Right before you bake, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg for the topping in a medium mixing bowl. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender or fork, until the clumps are pea-sized.
  • Sprinkle half of the topping on casserole. Set aside the other half.
  • Place the other half of the bread pieces on top of the topping in the baking dish.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together, eggs, eggnog, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar.
  • Pour egg mixture over bread.
  • Cover with foil and press down gently so the bread will soak up all the egg mixture.
  • Refrigerate overnight or minimally 3-4 hours.
  • Before baking sprinkle the remaining topping on top of the casserole.
  • Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Serve warm with lots of maple syrup.
