Everyone needs a good French Toast Casserole Recipe in their recipe arsenal.
So when Fred Meyer stores (Kroger) asked me to develop a recipe using one of their new Private Label Dash of That products to cook or bake in, I knew exactly what I wanted to try. Being inspired by my Overnight Blueberry French Toast Casserole and this Cinnamon French Toast casserole, I used their 4-quart rectangle baking dish in white to create another family favorite French Toast Recipe that is easy and tasty. I knew this French Toast Casserole with Blueberries & Raspberries would look gorgeous! (printable recipe below)
French Toast Casserole with Blueberries and Raspberries
I’ve been wanting a large casserole dish with handles for a while.
Of course when I saw they also had red… I had to think about it. I also got a little distracted with the cookware too, because I need some new pots and pans!

I gathered my supplies so I could whip up this recipe for a weekend brunch. I use a lot of the Fred Meyer Private Selection ingredients for everyday cooking as well as in this recipe. Private Selection always means quality.
This Baked French Toast Casserole is a little custard like. It’s light and fluffy! You’ll want to serve it right away because it does deflate a little once you remove it from the oven.
I used raspberries and blueberries, but you could also add blackberries or strawberries! The more berries, the better!
Breakfast casseroles make weekends that much more relaxing. They’re easy, but still, offer something special. This could also be made up the night before and baked in the morning. So easy!
The custard-like texture with the sweet berries melted in your mouth! No syrup needed.
- 1 loaf bread, about 12 slices - I used Private Selection Whole Wheat Bread
- 4 Tablespoons softened butter
- 4 large eggs
- 1½ cups whole milk
- ⅓ cup sugar (and maybe a teeny bit more to sprinkle on the top)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 cup blueberries
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut the crust off each piece and butter one side of each slice.
- Stack a few slices of bread and cut into cubes.
- In your greased casserole dish (I used a 4-quart dish) Place ½ of the cubed bread, then sprinkle half the berries, then add the rest of the cubed bread and top it off with the remaining berries.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt.
- Pour over the bread mixture.
- Sprinkled a tablespoon or so of sugar over the top (optional).
- Cover lightly with foil and bake for about 20 min. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 30-35 min.
- If you still see visible liquid, you'll need to bake longer. Inserting a butter knife or toothpick into the center can let you know if it's finished. If it comes out pretty clean, you're good.
