  1. Step 1

    Whisk milk and peanut butter together in a large bowl until fully incorporated. Whisk in 3/4 cup sugar, beaten eggs, vanilla extract, and salt. Add bread cubes and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes, stirring once after 10 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, quarter strawberries and toss with remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl. Let sit, stirring occasionally, until ready to use.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread butter in a 9x13-inch (or 3-quart) baking dish.
  4. Step 4

    Transfer 2/3 of the bread mixture to the prepared dish; spread in an even layer. Dollop 1/2 of the preserves over top in small spoonfuls. Scatter 1/2 of the sliced strawberries and juices over top. Top with remaining bread mixture and remaining strawberries and juices. Cover with foil.
  5. Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until just set, 35 to 45 minutes longer.
  6. Step 6

    Remove from the oven and immediately spread remaining preserves over top. Let rest for 5 minutes, then sprinkle with peanuts and serve.
