  1. Evenly distribute the butter cubes into the bottom of a 10x14-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the butter. Arrange the pear slices into the bottom of the dish. Arrange the bread cubes into a single layer over the pears.
  2. Mix the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and almond extract together in a bowl until fully blended; pour evenly over the bread cubes, assuring all pieces are evenly covered. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and chill overnight in refrigerator.
  3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the casserole from the refrigerator and allow to warm while the oven preheats.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the top of the bread is golden brown and the eggs have solidified, 45 to 60 minutes. Top with the sliced almonds to serve.


  • Partner tip: Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I made something extremely close to this (without the pears). It was incredible!! Everyone loved it. 2 1/2 cups of eggs is (according to my own recipe) about 8-12-depending on if you're using me...

Terrific recipe! I used fresh pears instead of canned, and it turned out great! Love the syrup that the butter and brown sugar create, it's just enough to give it a wonderful sweetness. UPDAT...

I made this with almond milk and vegan butter and it was delicious!

Fantastic breakfast! My entire family (even the children) loved this not-overly-sweet breakfast. The only changes to the original recipe that I made was using fresh red pears (three) instead of ...
