    Family enjoyed it but I had to split it into two dishes mid way thru. There is no way it bakes in 20 minutes! It baked for a solid hour+ before it was set. I'd have rated it higher if the cook time had been more precise.

    Made this for Christmas morning 2019 and it was everything I had hoped for. Absolutely delicious! I actually added cubes of cream cheese and loved the addition so much. Thank you!

    This recipe was superb! I loved the colourful twist to traditional French toast and the French bread and fruit made it delicious!

    This is excellent and very easy. Based on comments in the reviews, I doubled the sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. It was delicious and not too sweet. Highly recommend.

    Excellent! I halved the recipe and used cinnamon swirl bread instead of regular bread.

    When I made this was delicious but just a bit soft. I like mine French toad casserole a little crunchy.

    This recipe is fabulous. I have made it twice and both times altered the recipe a little. Once, I made it with cubed Hawaiian bread, that I toasted in the oven. Most recently I used cubed angel food cake that I toasted in the oven. Both versions were real crowd pleasers.
