Freezing This Recipe You can freeze this casserole, but I suggest you do so without the berries. They contain too much water and will soak your bread. French toast casserole can be frozen for one to two months. You can reheat this directly from frozen in a 350 F oven for 30-40 minutes.
Reheating This Recipe This baked French toast casserole can be stored in the refrigerator for five days. To reheat, I recommend you take the time to warm it in the toaster oven or conventional oven. The microwave will make it soggy. It will take ten minutes to completely reheat in a 350 F oven.
