Spend just 15 minutes prepping this casserole the night before, and you’ll have extra time to make a fruit salad and pour the coffee as it bakes. It’s a keeper! —Patricia Nieh, Portola Valley, California

"I manage a Bed & breakfast Inn and decided to make this for our guests one morning. It was a big hit! easy to make and oh so tasty! (Got to enjoy what little leftovers there were.) Definitely going to be making this again. Might even try using sourdough instead of regular french bread for an extra little kick! So highly recommend this recipe!"
