An easy Overnight French Toast Casserole topped with peach cobbler — the BEST French toast I’ve ever had! So perfect for Spring!

I’m not sure you can fully understand my love of brunch.

The other day we were having another couple over for dinner and I was trying to decide what to make. I was telling my husband how much I would love to host people for dinner and serve up a huge brunch spread, but I didn’t because I’m not sure if everybody eats breakfast for breakfast, brunch and brinner like I do.

But wouldn’t that be awesome?!?

Since there are just 4 of us, and our 3 year old and 1 year old don’t eat that much, I never have an excuse to whip up a bunch of different brunch dishes for one meal. Normally, we’ll have just French toast. Or just pancakes. Or just bacon and eggs.

And someday I’d really love to have an excuse to have French toast casserole (this Peach Cobbler one or my other favorite — S’mores French Toast Casserole!), maybe this Mini Wonton Quiche, a fruit salad, coffee, tea, juices, and maybe some sweet rolls (White Chocolate Cranberry perhaps?) or muffins (my favorite Double Chocolate Banana Bran!) to round things out. Can’t you just imagine?

That right there is my perfect dinner table. Who’s with me? Tell me I’m not the only one who fantasizes someday hosting an unreal brunch.

I know that some families will celebrate with a big brunch at Easter, Christmas or Thanksgiving, but we tend to usually host our gatherings around the dinner table, which leaves me not a lot of places to recklessly indulge in breakfast foods. Some day, though. Some day I will host a Brunch Dinner Party Extraordinaire!

French Toast

  • 10 slices bread I used a thin Rye bread*, cubed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups sliced peaches fresh or canned

Cobbler topping

  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour


  • Spray an 8×8″ pan with non stick spray. Place bread cubes in the pan.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar and pour over bread cubes. Top with an even row of sliced peaches.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and set in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours or overnight.
  • For the cobbler topping, combine melted butter, sugar and flour with a spoon until crumbly. This can be made ahead of time and stored in an air tight container or made just before baking.
  • To bake: uncover and sprinkle with cobbler topping. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes until completely set and cobbler is light golden brown.
  • Serve warm with syrup if desired.


*If you’re using a thick sliced bread, you may only need about 8.

    This was such a good recipe! I made some substitutions to lower the fat and carb content, since I count macros but still wanted to enjoy this breakfast. In place of thick rye bread, I used Sara Lee 45 calorie bread, replaced the eggs with egg whites and with the exception of the cobbler topping, used sugar free maple syrup in place of the granulated sugar. I did not skimp on the cobbler topping. It was a delightful treat while still being able to work with my dietary needs. I dusted my portion with powdered stevia, and my kids had theirs with whipped cream and syrup. We will be making this again!

    What has become of our society? Am I the only one who thought to put whipped cream on top for serving? Yummmm. This is delicious and a wonderful way to eat dessert for breakfast or lunch or dinner. As a child and by choice, the only breakfast I would eat was french toast with jelly on it. My mom never made it this way, however. This recipe is a dream come true for me! When we have the brunch themed dinner, I’ll bring the whipped cream!!!!

    THis look looks amazing!! Question … when you say “canned” could you use the canned peaches from the store in light syrup? Is that what you’re talking about?

    Made this for Christmas breakfast. Delicious! I should have let this come to room temp before baking. Adjusted the temp to 400 for an extra 15 minutes. The family is already asking for more.

    I made this for a Christmas brunch today and it was a big hit. I used a loaf of Hawaiian bread and 2 slices out of a second loaf, doubled everything else and used a 9×13 pan. I had exactly 2 cups of leftover heavy cream and used that instead of the milk. I also added chopped nuts on top of one end of the casserole because I like nuts. After putting the topping on, I sprinkled a cinnamon and sugar mixture on top. Delicious!!!

    Hi Ashley! We love peach cobbler and putting it on top of rye sounds delicious! I have home canned peaches in the basement and I just bought a loaf of really good rye bread for Reuben sandwiches… 🙂

    You can have me over any time for brunch! 🙂 I absolutely love breakfast for dinner, so this casserole would probably be devoured for every meal. Peaches are my favorite fruit for desserts too, so I’m loving this french toast! Sounds SO good!
