"This Strawberry French toast casserole reminds me of sunny Sunday mornings, waking up to the smell of my mother cooking breakfast. It’s decadent and sweet with crisp caramelized edges and a nice custardy center," says Britney Brown-Chamberlain, founder of food blog BritneyBreaksBread.com.
"Since strawberries are one of my favorite fruits and French toast is always so yummy, I decided to put them together and make this unforgettable breakfast that everyone loves."
