This recipe is from the Casserole Queens from their Casserole Queens Cookbook. The two run a casserole home delivery chef business in Texas. Frenchy toast casserole is a great way to have French toast for a brunch or breakfast without someone slaving away at the stove. This is a recipe you can tweek to your liking. If you like it less sweet decrease sugar and butter mixture. If you like a certain fruit on top use it in whole form, in a puree on top or even a layer of jam in between layers, or use no fruit at all. It is great with no added syrup because the paste layer or layers makes it sweet. It is a great presentation. Enjoy!
