    I would love for you to try this and tell me what you think! Please be honest...if you don't like it or preferred it made another way or have suggestions, I want to hear about it. Thanks so much!

    Pineapple French Toast Casserole

     

    1 15 oz Can Crushed Pineapple

    ¼ Cup Heavy Cream

    1 tsp Vanilla

    3 eggs - beaten

    3-5  ½ inch slices of Ciabatta Bread

    ½ Stick Butter – melted

    2 Tbsp Cinnamon Sugar

    ½ Cup Heavy Cream

    3 Tbsp Sugar

    Mix thoroughly together the pineapple, cream, vanilla and eggs and pour into a greased 9x9 casserole dish.  Dip bread slices in butter and lay on top of the pineapple mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or until top is a deep golden brown. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes. While casserole is baking, beat heavy cream, gradually adding sugar, until stiff peaks form.  When serving the casserole, top with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle with a bit more of the cinnamon sugar if desired.

    Alternatives:

    Peel, core and slice an apple and add it with the pineapple.

    Try peaches! Just crush them before mixing with the other ingredients.

    If you don’t have, or can’t find ciabatta bread, I’ve used regular white sandwich bread with great success.

    Shannon, this looks worth a try.  Is it an over-night casserole or just throw together & bake?  Alot of the french toast casseroles I've seen are over night deals, which is convienant, but I don't like custard...so it ends up too custardy like for me.  The ciabatta bread would be a dry bread, so it shouldn't get too soft.  I'll probably try it this weekend.  Thanks for sharing.

    Sue, I've never made this as an overnight casserole. I'm sure it could be but it's so easy, I just throw it together and put it in the oven. You'd be amazed, but regular bread doesn't go soggy on this. It toasts up all buttery and brown on the top and makes it really good. I'm looking forward to hearing from you after you've tried it!
