Ingredients

  • 1 loaf day-old French or Italian bread
  • 4 cups fresh, mixed berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries all work well)

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
  • 3 oz cream cheese, cut into small chunks

Directions

  • Cut bread into slightly bigger than bite-sized cubes.

  • Add remaining bread cubes to the casserole dish. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and extracts. Evenly pour over the bread cubes.

  • Remove casserole dish from the refrigerator while preheating the oven to 375°F.
