Baked French Toast Casserole

READY IN: 8hrs 25mins
Recipe by Karen From Colorado

Prepare this dish the night before and just pop it into the oven when you wake up for a fast breakfast. The smell alone will wake the kiddies for school in the morning. Prep time is 30 minutes + overnight chill time.

this was very good, my mistake was the french bread I used was to soft and it made it mushy, BUT the cream cheese spread you make for this was awsome! it would be good to make and put on bagels. but over all this was very good and I think I will make it again but with a dince type of bread.
