"This delicious breakfast has been a favorite of mine for years," raves Sherri-Jo Capodiferro of Brightwaters, New York. "I like that I can assemble it the night before. I try to keep my mornings as simple as possible since I am a night owl and not a morning person!"

"Delicious and easy! I didn't have 1 inch thick bread or cream so I used a double layer of sandwich bread and 2% milk. I baked it a couple of hours after making it. I flipped the pan over so as to leave as little of the yummy caramel in the pan as possible. My 2 teenage kids liked it, too.."

"This is a great recipe to incorporate into breakfast rotation. easy to make the night before so can concentrate in the morning on coffee, fruit, breakfast meat to go with it. I thought 2 servings was quite liberal until I saw how fast two people scarfed it down. Pan cleaned up very easily. Only thing I would do different is turn it upside down on the plate (didn't read about that until after breakfast)."

"I absolutely loved this recipe, and I wouldn't change anything about it, the flavor was there and it was nice and moist. I even used homemade white bread which just made it even better"

"What an incredible treat to have for breakfast on the weekend. Basically, this was SO DELICIOUS that I cannot wait to make it again. Flipping the bread over into the sauce after baking was a great idea!"

"I have made this a couple of times. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and the second time I thought I would cut back on some of the liquid, the vote was, follow the recipe exactly, it was too dry without all the liquid."

"Some great tasting French Toast!! I always use 2% milk instead of half & half. We have made it several times and always after it's done baking we flip the pieces upside down so the caramel filling is sitting on top of the bread. My Favorite recipe for french toast!!"

"Sounds delicious and I am going to make this weekend - I agree with Batemanj, Bettycrocker1961 shouldn't even be looking at this stuff if she is on weight watchers - why would you even check the ingredients and then make a comment like that - DON'T EAT IT!!"
