A cross between French toast and bread pudding, this dish is great for a crowd. To save time, assemble casserole, without baking it, the night before your buffet, then refrigerate it, covered, til cooking time. Soaking the bread for 24 hours makes for a moister dish. The strawberries can be make up to an hour ahead. Source: Weight Watchers
