Raspberry Mascarpone French Toast Casserole

Beginning in the early days of our marriage, Bill would tease that a more loving wife would prepare a nice hot breakfast before work (ahem, his alarm goes off at 5 AM). I’d laugh and roll my eyes, but sometimes I do pamper him. This overnight berry stuffed French toast casserole was one such treat. Layered with challah cubes, dollops of sweetened mascarpone and fresh berries, then doused with a rich custard, this French toast was one delightful way to start the morning!Raspberry Mascarpone French Toast Casserole | A make ahead breakfast filled with mascarpone cream and fresh raspberries
