French toast, by nature, isn't real flavorful. It's basically bread dipped in eggs and milk, the flavor coming from the syrup or toppings. The lemon zest in this dish adds a nice sweetness, which pairs especially well with fresh berries. I used strawberries but raspberries, or any other berry, would easily work.
This recipe can be made and baked immediately or made the night before. I like to slowly ease into my Sunday mornings so I assembled this dish and refrigerated it overnight. All I had to do in the morning was make coffee, prepare the berries and wait for the casserole to cook. Breakfast doesn't get much easier than this!
