Pour over the French bread. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.

Besides cutting down a bit on the sugar I followed the directions exactly. However I could only fit 6 slices of bread in the pan, they were pretty big slices and I had to squeeze them to fit. That being said, I felt there was way too much milk. The bread was really wet after baking. It had really great flavor and the house smelled wonderful while baking. I may try again using less milk and maybe more egg.

This was a delicious and easy to prepare recipe. I love being able to put breakfast together the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. I had to tweak the recipe a little because I only had a demi loaf of day old French bread. I was able to get 8 small 1 inch slices out of the loaf. I was going to halve the recipe but ended up just tweaking it a little. Here are the changes I made: 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/4 c light corn syrup, 8 slices of french bread, 1 3/4 c 2% milk. Everything else I left the same. I baked it in an 8x8 glass baking dish. I mixed together the cinnamon and sugar mixture but ended up only using a little over half because that seems like enough. I baked 50 mins and it came out of the oven perfect! My husband loved it, so I will be making this again in the future!



My son loves french toast and asked for it today for breakfast. I had a small loaf of day old french bread. I halved the recipe, but used 2 eggs. I did NOT refrigerate overnight, just prepared and let sit for 15 minutes to soak. I also mixed the cinnamon in the egg mixture. Skipped the sprinkle of sugar before baking. Served with blueberry and spice sauce recipe.
