This delicious berries and mango french toast casserole with chocolate drizzle is the perfect Sunday brunch dish. This is one of my favorite breakfast casseroles. Leave it in the fridge overnight and just pop it into the oven in the morning for a quick and amazing breakfast recipe that is sure to please everyone.
We’ve been cooking a lot lately with the kids and breakfast casseroles like this overnight french toast casserole. I love french toast casseroles, they are such an easy breakfast dish and they also work for brunch or dessert.
For this french toast casserole I decided to bring together some of my favorite fruits: blueberries, mango and raspberries. And to make it even more special I drizzled the fruit with home made chocolate sauce. Did I mention that this would make an awesome dessert?
This is a great dish to make with the kids. My kids specially love melting and drizzling the chocolate, and making a mess along the way because that is part of the fun or rather the reality of cooking with your kids.
The good thing about cooking with older kids, like mine, is that they can help me with the clean up afterwards so I don’t really mind the mess. Cooking together is a lot of fun and I know that these are the memories they will cherish when they are older.
