We all love a french toast casserole, especially one you can prep the night before, like this strawberries and cream one. But I immediately switch to this fall, seasonal overnight goodness as soon as we hit October.

It’s everything we love about fall on one comforting plate. Creamy, pumpkin-brioche-soaked-bread topped with pecans for that extra crunch and that oh-so-perfect buttermilk glaze.

It’s simply perfect. That is all. And you can make all of this the night before. Simply bake, drizzle and serve in the morning.
