This is an easy breakfast casserole that my veggie daughter and very picky son will all eat! It is a very forgiving recipe and you can add anything you want.

This is THE best French Toast we have ever had. I ade it because I had 2 extra kids here for a sleepover, and all 4 kids loved it as much as my hubby & I did! I didn't add the zest, because I thought it might put the 2 smaller kids off, but apart from that, I made it as written. Fantastic recipe, and is perfect for a special breakfast when you have a lot of people to feed. I loved that all the work was done the night before! Will make this regularly!
