French Toast Brunch Casserole

I found this delicious and easy recipe on Rachael Ray’s site. It’s a big favorite with my family and can be made without the crumble topping if you’re in a hurry – it’s still really good! The secret here is to top it with pure maple syrup – that’s the key to any good pancake, waffle, or french toast recipe.

Notes

This recipe is a bit decadent, but it’s perfect for a holiday brunch or to serve when you have family or friends coming over. Also, keep in mind this is very much like a souffle so be gentle with it. The last time I made it when I peeked in a it, it looked amazing. Big, fluffy and gorgeous! And then when I went to take it out of the oven it had fallen! It was still delicious though!
