    I think I would add a little more cinnamon or more vanilla. I also would not layer it next time because the middle was too soggy.

    Added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Delicious!

    The flavor was good. Not too sweet just sweet enough. For some reason it did not seem to cook all the way through. Not sure if it was because of the juice of the strawberries or if it really was that the casserole didn’t cook through. I cooked it for approximately one hour. Admittedly I allow the egg mixture to soak into the bread overnight. I also added fresh strawberries on the top

    this was great! and easy. used Hawaiian bread because i couldn't find challah bread.
    I used whole wheat bread and stevia instead of sugar. It was amazing! I served with sugar free ice cream and sugar free ganache 😋

    It looked delicious, but I was somehow unable to get it to cook all the way through so I have no idea if it actually tastes delicious. I’ll have to try this again..

    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!
