  • Texas toast style bread
    12 slice
  • light cream cheese (cold)
    12 oz
  • Fresh Strawberries
    2 cup
  • eggs
    9 large
  • fat-free half-and-half
    1 1/2 cup
  • sugar-free maple-type syrup
    1/3 cup
  • no calorie granulated sugar substitute (sucralose original)
    3/4 cup
  • unsalted butter
    2 tsp


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, creamer, and maple syrup. Pour mixture over the bread cubes. Press bread gently with the back of a spoon to moisten completely. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

  2. Coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Cube the bread and cream cheese. Slice the strawberries.

  3. Place half of the bread cubes in the dish. Layer the cream cheese cubes and 1 cup strawberries over the top of the bread. Top with remaining bread cubes.

  4. To prepare the sauce, toss the sugar with remaining strawberries. Let stand for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour the mixture into the blender and blend until smooth. Transfer the sauce to a small saucepan. Add butter and simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake the casserole uncovered until golden brown, about 45 to 50 minutes.

  6. Remove the casserole from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Cut into 12 servings and serve with warm strawberry sauce. (1 piece should be 2-1/4 inches by 3 inches.)
