Here is another great collaboration I did for my friends over at Inspired Home (International Houseware Association) and I can honestly say that my husband cannot wait for me to make this French Toast Casserole again. If you’re going to make something special for brunch this weekend or just want to indulge yourself, then don’t look any further…. this the recipe for you!
The butter and brown sugar mix at the bottom of the French Toast is out of this world! It makes the French Toast crunchy, the cream cheese mix makes the middle part stay creamy (not soggy) and the top layer gets more toasty by cooking it under the broiler for another few minutes. Seriously guys, your mouth & belly will thank you and I’m really afraid you’ll become addicted just like we did. Don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂
