I wish this recipe would have developed in my head before Valentine’s day, but it will still come in handy this month…
Just realize that I know that I am a dork before reading on:
For St. Patrick’s Day, say to your husband,“Kiss me like the Irish, and I’ll kiss you like the French”– give him the casserole instead… Then kiss him, of course.
Or tease your husband the night before April Fools’ Day about getting all kinds of kisses in the morning. Serve this for breakfast instead.
If you serve it for Easter, you may want to substitute the name to “French Toast Casserole.” It still tastes good :). And, well, that’s what it is.
Everything’s better with a little “french” before the name… aka, fries, bread………:). I’ve always LOVED French traditions.
Really, “French Kiss Casserole” is delicious any time, any season.
This is Biscoff spread. Most grocery stores keep this in stock.
This is Cookie Butter found exclusively at Trader Joe’s.
How to make the French Kiss Casserole:
1 loaf french bread
8 large eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup Cookie Butter or Biscoff Spread
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup Oreos
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 stick cold butter, cut in pieces
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
crushed Oreo cookies and/or Biscoff cookies, crumbled
Optional: syrup, caramel sauce, more Cookie Butter
Butter a 9 X 13 pan. Then cube or tear french bread and place in the pan. Set aside.
In blender mix:
Eggs, milk, heavy cream, Oreo Cookies, Cookie Butter or Biscoff Spread, and vanilla.
Pour over pan of french bread pieces.
Cover and let sit overnight… or precede with recipe if in a rush!
Whisk together flour, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. Add in butter pieces. With a fork or pastry cutter blend the ingredients until it clumps into little pieces. (It takes a while with a fork, but it will work). Add in crumbled cookies.
Refrigerate until you are ready to bake.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour (or 45 minutes if you prefer it more pudding like).
While it’s baking, whip the rest of the heavy cream. Then get out syrup, caramel sauce, or more cookie butter.
Top it and eat.YUM!
