How To Make An Egg Bake With French Bread

Gather the Ingredients

To make a delicious egg bake, you will need bread, eggs, milk, cheese, and seasonings. If you don’t have milk, you can use cream, half-and-half, or even milk substitute.

You can also use a combination of breads, like white bread, wheat bread, and rye bread. Any type of cheese will work, too, but for this recipe I usually use Gruyere, cheddar, or mozzarella.

Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Casserole Dish

Before you start prepping your ingredients, preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish and set aside.

Cube Fresh French Bread

Cut fresh French bread into 1-inch cubes. If you are using a variety of breads, make sure to cube the breads separately. Spread them on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.

Prepare Egg Mixture

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cheese, and seasonings. You can also add any other ingredients you want, like cooked bacon, onion, peppers, mushrooms, or spinach.

Assemble the Egg Bake

In the prepared baking dish, spread 1/3 of the bread cubes. Then spread 1/3 of the egg mixture over the bread cubes. Repeat for the remaining bread cubes and egg mixture.

Bake the Egg Bake in Oven

Bake the egg bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until golden brown and eggs are set. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Cool and Serve with Desired Toppings

When the egg bake is cool enough to handle, cut it into slices and serve with desired toppings, such as sour cream, hot sauce, salsa, or sriracha.

Optional Variations for Egg Bake Recipe

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also experiment with different flavors by adding cooked sausage, ham, or other meats to the egg mixture. You can also try with different types of cheeses, like feta or goat cheese.

Or you can increase the flavors by adding spices, such as paprika, cumin, thyme, basil, oregano, or rosemary.


If you’re looking for a quick and easy breakfast or brunch dish, then look no further than this egg bake recipe. It’s full of flavor, satisfying, and fun to make.

Plus, it’s great for feeding a crowd or just one person! Simply preheat the oven, assemble the bake, bake, cool, and serve. Enjoy!
