Raspberry French Toast Breakfast Casserole

So glad Regina found this delicious French toast recipe in the Food Network Magazine. She made a couple tweaks and her family loved it. Now, I make it for my family and they also love it. It’s a perfect occasional indulgence that I won’t feel guilty about enjoying every single bite of.

Great for a Sunday brunch when company comes to visit. It’s elegant yet so simple to throw together. I have also served this as a dessert. It was a big hit on a dessert table. A nice warm piece of this and a dollop of whip cream. How good does that sound?  Bake one of these beauties up soon, you and everyone who tastes this will be so happy you did. Beyond yummy that’s for sure!
