MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2014

"I cut this recipe in half and it turned out wonderfully in a 8 by 8 baking dish. I made it for brunch today. I wish I would have read the reviews because I didn't use the nonstick spray as recommended below and had little issue trying to remove from the pan. Mine did not turn out as pretty as pictured above. But all in all my husband did say he could eat this everyday."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2014

"This is definitely easy to assemble and bake the next morning. Be sure to spray pan so it is nonstick. The taste was a bit too sweet for me. I don't I'll make this again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 22, 2014

"I really loved this recipe because of how easy it was to put together and you can put it together the night before. I did use milk in place of the heavy whipping cream because it's what I had on hand. I think it turned out great even though I used milk. I used regular bread too."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 17, 2014

"I used Texas toast instead egg bread, worked fine. It stuck when I went to flip pan so I would spray it next time. Add more pecans if you're a nut lover. Overall- DELICIOUS!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 16, 2014

"This was delicious! A weekend splurge definitely. The only thing I would change would be to spray the pan with cooking spray before adding the ingredients. When I inverted it to serve, part of it stuck to the pan."
