This lighter version of French toast casserole eliminates the sugar and butter, yet still tastes great. Make it the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning for fuss-free breakfast morning prep!

The flavoring was wonderful and the top layer was amazing...but no matter how long I baked it the middle was still mush. I will be trying it again though but I'll use a baking pan next time. Read More

4.5 Stars: It took getting used to it being thin but it is supposed to be like French Toast so it makes sense. I assembled and refrigerated for 8 hours. Very good and no sugar-free flavor at all. Read More

I let it sit overnight in the fridge like the recipe suggested. I also put a few little pieces of 1/3 less fat cream cheese cubes (about 2 ounces total) over the top. It was good but I did have to pour the syrup on it and sprinkle it with powdered sugar to give it a sweet enough taste for me. Maybe I just have a sweet tooth! Read More

This is wonderful. I have been looking for a way to lower the fat and sugar in things and I sure did not miss them in this. I like it as is and have done the cream cheese dollops as Paula did the second time I made it. Read More

This was delicious. I accidentally forgot to add the cinnamon and sugar with the milk and eggs so I sprinkled all of it on top and it still turned out. I did add the cream cheese pats on top. Either way it would be delicious though! I will definitely make this again! Read More
