French Toast Strata

READY IN: 8hrs 35mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

This is a good recipe to use when company comes or when you are entertaining for brunch. Sometimes, I add dried apricots, snipped into small pieces. The apple syrup (in database) is very good with this too. Prep time includes 8 hours in refrigerator.

What a super breakfast this made on Easter morning. Loved the addition of the cream cheese, and I did make your apple syrup. Had maple bacon and sausages and some fresh fruit! Great recipe Annie, TY!
