With a bunch of leftover veggies, I thought of making a breakfast casserole. I had a half of a loaf of a French baguette that I sliced and let air dry all day.
This turned out to be a perfect warm and satisfying breakfast!
I think my favorite is where the bread pops up and gets crispy in some places. Just delicious!
The only kicker is that it has to be made the night before to be able to sit in the fridge overnight. Otherwise, the egg mixture doesn't fully soak into the dried bread.
