For a sensational Sunday brunch dish, try this French toast. You put it together the night before, so you only need to bake it and make the sauce the next morning.—Brad Shue, Harper, Kansas

"We loved this!! Looked just like the picture, and it was sweet and gooey. The sauce that you make needs to be served with it immediately or it ends up like a chewy candy, but the sauce that bakes in the bottom is like a syrup and tastes wonderful!! This goes in my husband's favorites."
