Instant Pot French Toast Casserole

1 pound stale brioche challah, or french bread (see notes)
6 large Nellie's Free Range Eggs
1 + 1/4 cups whole milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/8-1/4 tsp orange zest (optional but delicious!)
2 TBSP brown sugar
3 TBSP unsalted butter

  1. This recipe works best with stale or dried out bread - see notes below if you need to dry out fresh, fluffy bread to make this tasty french toast casserole!
  2. Prep a 1.5 quart round oven-safe baking dish. Prevent sticking by spraying with cooking spray (avocado oil is my favorite) or rub the inside of the dish with butter. Optional: Cut a circle of parchment paper to line the bottom of the dish for extra easy removal. <-- I do this and love it!
  3. Cut bread (crust included) into 1-inch cubes and add to a large bowl. Set aside.
