This smaller french toast casserole recipe is incredibly easy and perfect for a cozy weekend breakfast, or scaled up for larger group or potluck dish. The maple streusel bread adds a little extra flavor, and recipe is also great made with a cinnamon raisin or Brioche bread.
Use a day old bread to avoid an overly soggy french toast. Leave the bread out overnight or if it’s a last minute breakfast decision, toast the bread lightly, just enough to dry it out a bit.
When pouring the egg and milk mixture over the bread, use just enough to coat ll the piece, you might have a little extra unused or you can also add more bread.
All the other ingredients are mixed up in a measuring cup. Working in small kitchen I try to use as few prep bowls and utensils as possible.
The cream cheese and berries added makes for a great holiday morning breakfast. The recipe can be scaled up for a potluck or freeze the leftovers for a weekday treat.
Serve topped with fresh berries and powdered sugar or drizzled with maple syrup. For a heartier breakfast fry up a few slices of bacon and crumble on top before serving.
