We only ever very rarely have a big breakfast at breakfast time unless we are eating out, which never happens unless we are on holiday. More often than not, something like this delicious breakfast casserole happens for supper. So . . . I guess I am a breakfast for supper kind of a gal! This french toast casserole is exceptional I have to say . . . what is it about calling something a crumble that automatically makes it taste twice as delicious?
Maybe its because the word crumble calls up thoughts of something delicious and buttery and sweet. Right on all three counts here! This IS delicious, and butter and sweet, although not cloyingly so.
You have the almost bread puddingy custard-like base . . . with just a touch of sweetness . . . nice. It's real asset however is that rich and crisp, oaty, sweet crumble topping . . .
Am I allowed to say WOW here? I sure hope so because this was absolutely WOW! That crumble topping tips it over the edge into scrumdiddlyumptious decadance! I added cinnamon and ground cardamom and nutmeg for a bit of a spice. Oh, I do love the warm baking spices, don't you??
Because it was supper we also had some crisp streaky bacon and chipolata sausages with it . . . gluten free ones . . . nice, nice.
And a drizzle of Maple Syrup. Because . . . you just have to don't you. If you take it easy on the carbs and sugar the rest of the week, a weekend indulgence is not so bad. I don't do it very often, but when I do, what a delicious way to go!

If you are open to a little bit of decadence this weekend, you can't go wrong with this! What a delicious way to end the month of October on. Excellent for breakfast, brunch or . . . yes, supper! Bon Appetit!
