Strawberry Stuffed French Toast Casserole has warm and delicious flavors and comes together for the ultimate breakfast…or dessert…whichever you prefer!

If I plan the night before, I’ll measure and have everything ready and all I have to do in the a.m. is throw it together and bake. It’s no secret for those who know me that I’m a morning person. I wake up full of energy and ready to take on the day. I love to get a good run in first thing and then have a good breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, french toast are among my favorite breakfast to cook and to eat. That makes this recipe a winner for me!

It’s sweet, but not too sweet. You can easily adjust the sugar if you don’t like sweet items for breakfast. And it does have fruit – that’s healthy, right?

Soft ciabatta bread is laced with fresh strawberries, vanilla, and cream cheese create an epic French toast casserole.

Strawberry Stuffed French Toast Casserole

  1. I have used french bread, Italian bread, ciabatta bread, baguette bread, and even glamorous hot buns for the bread in this recipe.
  2. You need dry bread so that it soaks up the custard. Even when I have one or two-day-old bread I often use this method to toast the bread and dry it out even more. Cut your bread into 1-inch cubes and place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Next, place them in a preheated 300°F oven. Bake them for about 10 minutes. Test to see how dry they are and return if necessary.
  3. Allow the bread to soak in the custard at least 15 minutes, however, the longer the better. You can even allow it to soak overnight in the refrigerator.
