      I loved this. I've been on a French toast casserole kick and this one seemed like a good everyday recipe. It did not come out too sweet and rich. I have to say that the cruchy top was a great touch. Thanks so much.

      Great French toast recipe! For one, this isn't one of those overnight dishes that turns into a custard consistency by morning. The bread stays in individual pieces and has the same texture as if it just came off the grill. There is no difference in taste when using egg substitute and the dish is healthier. I used real sugar instead of a substitute and maple syrup instead of the strawberry syrup (my kids won't eat strawberry!). The only modification I made was to add more butter/shredded wheat mix on top. We loved that crunch!! I love the ease of putting it together and then just waking up to pop it in the oven. The kids get a favorite hot cooked breakfast without you having to spend any rushed "before school" time preparing it. Thank you Barb for sharing this keeper. We had a great start to the day.
