    I've been making this since the Spring 2006 Cooking for 2 published it! It is absolutely fabulous! My husband loves it, especially when I add dried Michigan cheries to it! So simple, and by preparing the night before, it's nice for a Sunday morning before church!

    very good, but had a sweet custart taste from the egg mixture that wasn't absorped by the bread. Next time, I will use day old bread.
