I love this recipe! It's perfect for fuss-free holiday breakfasts or company, it’s scrumptious and so easy to put together the night before. —Amy Berry, Poland, Maine

"Excellent! I halved the recipe and used cinnamon swirl bread instead of regular bread."

"When I made this was delicious but just a bit soft. I like mine French toad casserole a little crunchy."

"This recipe is fabulous. I have made it twice and both times altered the recipe a little. Once, I made it with cubed Hawaiian bread, that I toasted in the oven. Most recently I used cubed angel food cake that I toasted in the oven. Both versions were real crowd pleasers."

"I had to sweeten it more. It was better the 2nd day after the berries softened and were absorbed into the bread."

"It was really easy to make and turned out delicious! The fruit baked beautifully to where you don't even need syrup. I made mine with whole wheat bread to make it even healthier!"

"A big hit at our church brunch table. HINT: instead of trying to crumble the butter sugar mixture, I melted it and drizzed it over the top. It worked really well and much less messy."

"This recipe is my second favorite way to use up day-old French bread (garlic bread being my favorite). It's EXCELLENT, can be cut in half and baked in an 8x8 dish, tastes equally good with fresh or frozen berries, and is delicious whether you use mixed berries or one type of berry alone."

"I requested this for mothers day breakfast. My hubby isn't a cook but he easily put this together. It was fantastic. I put a tiny bit of powdered sugar on top. We used a loaf of thick sliced french toast type bread. The whole family loved it. Hubby said he would make this again."
