Campfire Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Delicious campfire french toast casserole tastes amazing and can be enjoyed around a campfire or outdoor fire pit!

I know that I’ve mentioned in past posts the joy that the children bring me in having very, VERY different hobbies from mine. I’m a bonafide city girl, and camping and horses and princesses are things that aren’t put on my “top favorites” list.

But I realize that my kids love those things so each year I make sure that they get to enjoy them. And my son every year chooses to go camping.

While the title “campfire” might have you scratching your head as a post for September, September is a FUN camping month. The hot weather has left and the nights cool off a bit making camping in a tent more bearable.

This is also a fun recipe for those of you who have firepits in your backyards. Sunday morning breakfast (or you can even use this as a dessert idea) is a great way to enjoy some friends and family time and enjoy a delicious meal.

Although I don’t suggest letting him start your fire for you.

Campfire Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Ingredients

    For the French Toast:
  • 1 loaf cinnamon swirl bread (I used Udi's for me--they have a cinnamon swirl Raisin bread or a cinnamon swirl banana bread that would work--this recipe is all about being EASY--you are camping that's enough work!)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk (non dairy can be substituted)
  • Topping Ideas:
  • Blueberries, Pecans, Walnuts, Strawberries, Raspberries
  • To Finish:
  • Powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Heat your coals or start your fire. I HIGHLY do NOT suggest having a 11 year old boy Boy Scout to help with this, but if that's all you have good luck. Hide the lighter fluid. 🙂
  2. Wrap the loaf in a layer of parchment paper, followed by a layer of foil. If you don't have parchment paper, heavy duty foil will work, just make sure to grease the foil.
  3. Sprinkle the topping you will be using if desired (you do NOT have to use the fruits or nuts, they are optional).
  4. Combine the eggs and milk in a bowl, whisking until smooth. Pour over the bread evenly.
  5. Wrap the foil and parchment paper around the loaf tightly, making sure there are no leaks.
  6. Place over the campfire or grill on low to medium heat for approximately 30-40 minutes turning every few minutes to ensure even cooking. Remove from heat, and make sure that eggs are cooked.
  7. Remove from fire and allow to cool for several minutes before serving.
  8. To serve, mix together some powdered sugar and milk until a glaze forms. Drizzle over the bread
  9. NOTE: If you get rained out or just LOVE camping like I do, (sarcasm) you can bake this bread in a 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.
