This is a favorite in my family. Blueberries can be substituted or any berry mix. But I find the strawberry variation to be the best.

We can see why this baked French toast is a favorite in Silka's family! It's easy to prep and the work is done the night before. In the morning, everyone will wake up to the aroma of this French toast baking. There's a hint of creamy tanginess from the cream cheese. We loved the strawberries within the French toast. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream for a wonderful brunch recipe or holiday breakfast.
