Strawberry season has been great this year!! I’m getting some frozen stash going and eating them fresh like crazy. Jam, syrup and this – an easy breakfast casserole that can be made the night before or just an hour before breakfast or brunch. Don’t worry about leftovers. There won’t be any!

Here’s How to Make a Strawberry French Toast Casserole:

Start by tearing the bread into bite sized pieces.

Slice the strawberries into thirds or simply some big slices. The bigger the berry, the more the slices. Small ones just need to be cut in half (saving a few for garnish).

Whisk the eggs, vanilla, half and half and granulated sugar together.

Lay half the bread in the bottom of a lightly buttered casserole dish.

Top with 1/2 the berries.

Do a second layer of the two on top of the first.

Pour the milk and egg mixture over the top and sprinkle with about 1 Tablespoon of the turbinado sugar.

Push the bread down in the liquid, then cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight. Remove from the refrigerator and let set for about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350°. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the top is golden.

Top with the remaining turbinado sugar and melt it with a brûlée torch.

You can use the broiler if you don’t have a torch, but I highly recommend a torch. They are inexpensive and easy to use!
