Strawberries and Cream French Toast Squares is a lovely breakfast or brunch dish for a special occasion. Make most of it ahead of time and prepare your table and the rest of your meal while it bakes. Cut into squares and place on a pretty plate, dust with powdered sugar and serve with sausage or bacon on the side. Warm maple syrup is optional, since this French toast is sweet enough on its own.
Strawberries and Cream French Toast Squares–easy to make ahead
When you read through the recipe for Strawberries and Cream French Toast Squares, you can see that most of this is easy to make ahead. Then just put it together the next day and bake it. The berries can be made the day before and kept in the refrigerator. The casserole can also be put together and refrigerated.
Try this with other fruits–peaches, blueberries or blackberries!
Right now it’s fresh peach season, so the next time I make this, I’m going to use fresh peaches and peach jam instead of strawberries. For those lucky enough to live in a place where blueberry jam is readily available, this would also be good with fresh blueberries and blueberry jam, or blackberries and blackberry jam. This recipe is a lot like another French toast casserole we’ve been making for many years, Blueberry French Toast Squares. The fruit jam gives it even more of the fresh fruit flavor, and in this version, the bread cubes on the top are slightly crispier.
