Easy Chocolate Chip French Toast Bake

Sharing is caring!

One of our favorite Christmas recipes is our French Toast biscuit bake. Because, yum! Who doesn’t love an easy and delicious recipe. We’ve also made a baked Chocolate French Toast (with almond milk) and Canned Biscuit Monkey bread

I love easy recipes and I love recipes that I can use with every member of our family. 

This delicious chocolate chip french toast bake fit the bill and I am looking forward to making it for Christmas this year.

Why chocolate chip French toast?

Why not? French Toast is a versatile breakfast food, I think. It’s great as a weekend treat but you can also dress it up (or down) as a dessert. Let’s face it, French toast can be pretty sweet and when you add in chocolate chips? Well, that just screams dessert to me.

Or some kind of special occasion. 

The best bread for baked French toast

While I do have a preference for using biscuits for my French toast bake, you can also use Brioche bread. Brioche holds up better than traditional sandwich bread. Or, if you have it on hand, you can use Challah bread.
