My little chef has made this Berrylicious French Toast recipe dozens of times and is now a French Toast Casserole aficionado. We have found a few tip and
Normally, I use sliced bread to make french toast casserole which is always a great option. But when I found a recipe that used King’s Hawaiian bread, I thought it would be a fun twist. The other ingredients included strawberries, blueberries, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, eggs and vanilla extract.
The first step is to cut the strawberries. My little chef thought it would be a great idea to use a straw to remove the hull from the middle of a strawberry. He learned this technique from his Ya-Ya when they made a No-Bake Strawberry Shortcake.
The most fun part of this recipe is tearing the bread into chunks. This was a big hit with my little chef. Add the pieces of bread, strawberries and blueberries to a casserole dish.
Next, add the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon to a separate bowl.
Whisk all the ingredients in the bowl. My little chef loves to use an OXO Good Grips Egg Beater to whisk the ingredients. It’s easy and fun to use when mixing ingredients. Sous Chef Mommies may have to hold the bowl while your little chef is using the hand blender.
Pour the mixture in the casserole dish evenly over the bread and make sure all the pieces are moist.
Cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Once you are ready to bake, remove the plastic wrap and place the casserole dish in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. You may let it stay in the oven a little longer if you prefer a more firm texture.
Let cool and serve with your favorite syrup, honey or whipped cream. But the dish is sweet and moist enough that you can enjoy by itself. You won’t believe that a dish this easy could be so good!
