Cinnamon and sugar top this fuss-free fare that tastes like French toast. Since you assemble it the previous night, you save time in the morning. —Sharyn Adams, Crawfordsville, Indiana

Easy, fuss-free breakfast! I made this at night, substituting 1/2 cup of heavy cream for 1/2 cup of the overall milk. I also added a cup of frozen fruit I had in my freezer, (strawberries, pineapple, papaya, and mango) and it added a great island feel! I do agree that the cover needs to be taken off at the end of the baking, just to add some crunch to the dish.

Super easy to make! I followed others' suggestions and used less liquid , left it overnight in a plastic bag and removed the foil for about ten minutes to crisp the top. A big hit with the family!
