This became a very popular recipe at work and at home! I definitely doubled the cream cheese and used Brioche bread since it was all I had access to and it was perfect! We topped it with some fresh strawberries too 😋

Made this for a Mother’s Day brunch and it was delicious! Simple to put together, the only thing I would do a bit diff next time, is double the amount of the cream cheese mixture you dollop into the bread. It tasted great as instructed for the amount, just thinking it would be delish with more cream cheese. I will definitely be making this again. Do yourself a favor and make sure to get a good Challah bread as it’s the perfect texture and sweetness for this recipe.

This dessert turned out absolutely delicious. it has just the right amount of sweetness, and it doesnt feel too heavy if you just have one serving. At first, I was afraid it had to much liquid in it, but as it baked it came to the perfect consistancy. I also cut extra strawberry pieces to sprinkle on top of the finished product too. I would highly recommend this recipe.

I didnt have cream cheese so simply made it without it. The french toast casserole recipe still turned out amazing

Easy and delicious . I made it with mixed berries and when it was cooled I drizzled a vanilla glaze over the top. Perfect! Was loved by all!
