French Toast Casserole

"I got this recipe from a friend when looking for something different to serve for a holiday brunch. We like ours with fruit and honey. Goes really well with cheesy ham cups that I've also posted. The prep time is putting it together along with refrigerate time."

  1. Loved this recipe. Try it with adding 8 oz. cubed cream cheese. Place 1/2 of cubed bread then cream cheese then remainder of bread. Also add 1/3 cup real maple syrup to mixture you pour over it.
  2. Oh, this was excellent! I loved it because of the taste of French toast without all the dipping and frying. This was really good. I had some dried apricots, which I stewed, and served as a topping too, yummm! I have been trying dishes to take on a camping trip, and this one definately goes with me. Thanks for posting it.
  3. Wonderful!!I did all prep the night before and forgot about it the next morning!Needless to say we had it for dessert that night.I added some chopped nuts and it was a hit!Thanks
  4. I made this for my husband's workplace (he's a Marine). Sometimes it's difficult to judge how good a recipe is when I send it there, because they'll eat anything, so I made a second one for my son. Both reviews were fantastic. Thanks for posting.
  5. This was very good.Loved being able to prepare it the night before.The kids thought it was great!I will be making this again.
