Recipe by Barb G.

This french toast is made in a baking dish, chilled for 2 to 24 hours topped with shredded wheat and baked. Great to serve for brunch or to guest. This comes from Better Homes and Gardens diabetic recipes.

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.
