Berry French Toast Casserole

Weekend brunch! Are you a breakfast or brunch person? I love both : )

Since brioche is slightly sweet, it was the perfect choice. I prepared the casserole in the evening to refrigerate overnight …couldn’t resist nibbling on a strawberry & a piece of brioche. Brioche is so darn good! It was a gorgeous morning! So…I made a cup of coffee, grabbed my camera and went outside. My son & I aren’t plain French toast lovers but this berry breakfast mash up was really good. Of course we drizzled maple syrup on our slices : ) Hope you all have a great weekend!
