This Berry French Toast Casserole is bursting with three kinds of berries, maple syrup and egg-soaked French bread for one delicious breakfast. Make it in advance (overnight directions included!) to serve a crowd for weekend brunch, Easter and so much more!
*If time allows, leave the bread out one day in advance to dry out the bread. You can also slice the bread, preheat oven to 275ºF and toast bread slices for about 3-4 minutes before cutting into 1″ cubes.
Prep time is a minimum of 2 hours. If your bread is extra dry or you’ve toasted it, about 6-8 hours of resting in the fridge overnight will work.
CREAM CHEESE – If you’re feeling a little indulgent, try adding 8 ounces chopped cream cheese (about 1″ cubes) into the casserole before you cover and refrigerate. Bake as directed.
STORAGE & REHEATING – French toast casserole is best enjoyed the day of, but leftovers will keep, covered, in the refrigerator 1-2 days. Reheat in 30-second intervals in the microwave.
