Not as good as it sounds I really wanted to like this. I love bread pudding and French toast is a favorite. What could be better than combining them? Well, regular old French toast with strawberries on top, for one. This baked up nicely and it looked fantastic in the pan, but there was no big flavor payoff. The berries disintegrated during baking. All those beautiful strawberries would have been better showcased macerated with the honey and drizzled over the top. And while it got nicely browned the bread would have been tastier had it been grilled like traditional French toast. And it took 2.5 hours start to finish to boot. Save yourself the time and trouble and just make french toast.
Great for breakfast or dessert Made this twice now and prepping another tonight - stupendous for brunch, not fussy, adaptable to a variety of fruits and didn't notice at all when I replaced the dairy with almond milk for a lactose intolerance. Pros: make ahead, easy, delicious Cons: none!
Gross Way to make the healthy version be totally gross! NOBODY ate this at my house. Pros: Sounds good Cons: Isnt good
