Strawberry-Almond French Toast Casserole

A quick, make-ahead recipe, ideal for Sunday or Mother’s Day Brunch and easy enough for Dad or the kids to assemble!

Use as 12 x 8 baking dish to serve this French Toast it at the table for Mom along with a Mimosa! You can put this French toast casserole together and cover in the fridge up to 8 hours in advance and pull out when ready to bake, or bake ahead and reheat when ready to serve.

Arrange strawberries and bread slices as desired .  I used a baguette that I sliced but you can cube the bread rather than slicing if you prefer. Layer it in your dish with sliced strawberries, set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar until smooth. Whisk in almond milk, extracts, and salt until well combined. Pour mixture over strawberries and bread in prepared pan. Let stand 20 minutes for bread to absorb liquid. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk for a dairy-free alternative for this recipe and some additional vanilla flavor, but use the milk of your choice if you don’t have almond milk.

Bake until lightly browned and set, about 35 minutes. Sprinkle with sliced almonds, confectioners’ sugar and maple syrup to serve.

To toast sliced almonds:
