Overnight Cinnamon French Toast

Some people call this ‘overnight French toast’ and some people call this ‘bread pudding’. I have yet to determine the difference but since I was cleaning out the fridge inspired and had it for breakfast, we’ll call it ‘overnight French toast’! Really, it’s just another excuse to have dessert for a meal, you know, like muffins and donuts?

Overnight cinnamon french toast with dried fruit and nuts

I couldn’t decide what I wanted to make with some old ciabatti buns that I had, bread pudding is always a good way to use bread that’s too dry to make a sandwich. But I also had a little dried fruit and some nuts that I had already shelled and chopped so I decided to use all of it in the bread pudding. Sometimes, these type of dishes are the best, other times they turn out like this recipe!

This French Toast turned out beautifully though and is now one of my favorite recipes. It’s rich without being too rich. There’s just enough crunch from the nuts and a nice chewiness from the dried fruit. But, the biggest bonus of this recipe is there is zero morning prep! I need that at my house in the mornings!
