    Very good. Took it to a baby shower and it was a hit. Sweet, but that is the nature of a French Toast casserole. It did bake a but longer than the recipe shows but ovens are different even if temperatures are not.

    I preface everything I say in this with: I don't like sweet things. With that said, this was delectable and WILL be a staple for our family gatherings/holidays henceforth. Very sweet but the correct fruit (strawberries, or something similar in acidity) truly balances the meal.

    Delicious! Made for brunch and everyone followed up for the recipe. It’s a new brunch essential!

    So yummy! Added fresh blueberries.
    Omg this was so good! I used pumpkin cream cheese instead of real cream cheese. Omg, it was so good it tasted like a million dollars at least.

    Really delicious, even though I just used French Bread. The topping didn’t turn out the perfect consistency, but the taste was great. (Has to use a good processor, because I’m not fancy enough to have a pastry blender.) Looked beautiful too! (Actual photo below, #unfiltered)

    Awesome recipe! I made for a brunch with my in/laws and they loved it. I used a sour dough loaf. I thought it may be too dense with the sour dough but it turned out delicious. I served it with cut up strawberries and blueberries on the side. A definite remake.

    So delicious. I️ did not modify at all. Cooked 1 hr and 10 minutes since I️ let it sit all night. Topped with maple syrup. It was so the perfect breakfast treat.

    My family loves it! I didn't include the streusel topping as it was already so sweet.

    Made this for our Christmas brunch and everyone enjoyed it. Not much leftover, but it was still just as good the next day after warming in the microwave. We did drizzle the topping with some maple syrup and added several fresh blueberries.

    Pretty good. I had a little trouble with the crumble; it didn't, but it came out fine regardless. I'll modify it the next time I make it.
