French Toast Muffin Cups – Popular recipe for Easy French Toast Casserole now in muffin cup form. Bake and grab, perfect for kids, breakfast or brunch favorite.
Today I’m sharing my Easy Baked French Toast Casserole in a new way. We’re taking on a different road. Still the same delicious, almost exactly. I did cut down the liquid a bit to keep it from overflowing but otherwise the same. But today we’re sharing it in a muffin style cup.
Why is this amazing? I had several reasons that I came up with.
- Perfect for small or larger families because eat what you want now and freeze the rest for later.
- Easy to grab one out of the freezer and heat up for school or work when you’re short on time.
- Take less time to bake.
- Your turn. _______ What other reasons might these be greater than the original?
I had these warm on the table when the kids came home from school last week and they couldn’t wait to try them. Now I’m now stating that they should be an afterschool snack. But on occasion? What the heck. Why not? Spoil ’em rotten. But only on occasion. Otherwise, it produces spoiled brats and we don’t want any more of them in our society.
If you love French Toast casserole I’m confident you’ll enjoy these too. Don’t forget to make them your own. Feel free to add raisins or blueberries or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
These would also be perfect for Easter brunch or Christmas brunch. Enjoy!

Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. To check, shake the cups. If it wiggles a lot it's not done. Continue to bake until it cooked through completely.
