Valentine Breakfast: Overnight French Toast Bake

This dish was amazing! I loved it. It is perfect for any holiday for breakfast, brunch, or dinner. There are also lots of variations you can make just by adding extra ingredients in between the two layers of Texas toast. I would love to try it again with sliced pears or peaches in between.

We topped ours with fresh sliced strawberries and whipped cream. Yum!
