Overnight Eggo® Waffle Casserole {recipe}

Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday in our house and one of my best tips for keeping a house full of kids happy until meal time is a filling breakfast.  Since we spend the day cooking the big meal, the last thing I want to do is spend the morning making a big breakfast, so I LOVE  the idea of serving a meal that I prepared the night before.  Traditionally I make a variation of this dish on Christmas Eve morning, but this year, I’m going to adopt this for Thanksgiving.  Using  Eggo® Nutri Grain Honey Oat Waffles, (my favorite), I’ve made an Overnight Eggo® Waffle Casserole using my tried and true overnight french toast recipe that is over-the-top delicious.  The best part about this recipe is that it uses Eggo® waffles which are always funner for kids!  Packed full of eggs and butter, the casserole has a delicious flavor and the waffles provide a crispier crust than the bread does {in the traditional recipe} that my kids prefer.
