“I *heart* French Toast Casseroles! I love how you can take SUPER STALE French bread and turn it into a breakfast (or dinner) masterpiece! By soaking the bread overnight in a fruity, egg-milk mixture, stale French bread can be completely transformed and redeemed!!! When I was sent this recipe, I HAD to try it!”
