Reviews forOvernight Caramel French Toast
"made this in 2 smaller pans, first one was excellent the first morning and the second just about as good as leftovers reheated the next daydid throw in some raisins between the layers of breadwill make again"
"So yummy if you like custardy french toast! Would be wonderful with some chopped pecans sprinkled in the pan before adding the bread."
"I use French bread n cook it a little longer so not mushy"
"Delicious old favourite."
"It had good flavor but an overall mushy texture. I'd probably use the spices and caramel sauce but put the bread on a griddle."
"The first time I made this recipe, I followed the recipe, and used texas toast, everyone loved it, I made it again recently, and thought I would try some of the advice that was written by the reviews to reduce the eggs and milk, it made it too dry, will go back to using all the eggs and milk. Family likes this recipe and it is so easy"
"This was so good, and nice to prepare the night before and forget about it! I halved the recipe and used only one layer of bread, so used only 2 eggs and less milk."
"My husband and I don't always get to enjoy breakfast in the morning so we thought we would try this one as a breakfast for dinner and get it ready in the morning and let it sit till we got home. We loved it! I used potato bread and it turned out great! It wasn't too sweet but we did think that next time we might include hashbrowns or another side to balance the sweet flavor. Very simple to prepare and definitely something different to put on our weekly dinner menus."
"This was a great twist on the old recipe. Very easy to make and everyone gets a hot piece of french toast at the same time, rather than having to pass them out 1 or 2 at a time. Also it makes or less mess at one time. I would definitely make this again!"
