French Toast Casserole, aka Hot Dog Bun Breakfast

Hot dog buns were on sale for 68 cents for a pack of 8. At that price, I had to pick up a bag, even if we don't eat buns with our hot dogs. Since we are big breakfast eaters around here, I decided to make it into a breakfast.

6 hot dog buns, cubed
6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon alspice
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/3 cup Splenda or sugar
1/2 cup raisins
2-3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
Syrup or powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x9 dish with Pam.
  2. Beat together eggs, milk, sugar and spices. 
  3. Add the buns (cubed) and raisins until the bread is covered.
  4. Pour egg/bread mixture into the dish.
  5. Bake 40 minutes.
  6. Add butter and about 3 tablespoons of syrup to the casserole. Bake 5-10 more minutes.
  7. Serve with syrup or powdered sugar.

    Katie added, "If you don't have a sugar allergy in your family, you could top it with a dusting of confectioner's sugar to make it fancy." I think she's watched too much Food Network.
