    My grandson loves this and always requests that I make it when he comes for a sleepover. Easy to make and very tasty.

    This is really, really good. I made it for a breakfast for dinner night with sausage links.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. I didn't have cinnamon raisin bread, so I just used regular sliced white bread. Still turned out great! It is breakfast and a dessert all rolled into one! I will definitely make again!

    This is a delicious recipe! I made it with blackberry jam and used regular cinnamon bread--no raisins. My family loved it!
