The Night Before

  1. Prepare your 9-by-13-inch baking pan by greasing the inside with softened butter or cooking spray. Tear bread into cubes, and place in the pan. Combine the the eggs, milk, cream, and vanilla and pour evenly over the bread. All of the bread pieces should be soaked in the milk mixture. Cover the pan tightly with foil and store in the fridge overnight.
  2. Mix all of the almond crumble ingredients together and store in refrigerator overnight.

In the Morning:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 deg F.
  2. Remove the French Toast and crumble from the fridge. Break up the crumble mixture and sprinkle it over the casserole.
  3. Bake for 40 minutes for a softer French toast and 60 minutes for a crispier French Toast.
  4. Top with sliced Strawberries to garnish. Add your Homemade Strawberry Butter and Syrup.
