Pecan Roll Overnight French Toast Recipe

Overnight french toast is one of my favorite go-to breakfast meals because it helps me turn a 30¢ discount loaf of Cuban or french bread into something edible! AND It’s a frugal meal that everyone in the home, and even guests, will think you spent hours on!

Pecan Roll Overnight French Toast Recipe


  • 1 stale loaf Cuban or French Bread
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups half and half
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


The night before, cut bread into chunks and place inside a LARGE mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, melted butter, half and half, 1/2 cup brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Pour mixture onto bread chunks.  Toss until all bread pieces are moist.  Cover bread mixture with a lid or plastic wrap and chill overnight.

The next morning, preheat oven to 350 deg.  Grease baking dish and add bread mixture.  Top with additional 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup pecans.

Bake for 30-45 min.
