Make this casserole the night before and just pop it in the oven for your breakfast or brunch. When turned over and out of pan, a caramel layer will have formed. Delicious!

Boiy is this ever YUMMY. I made it for company and used Texas Toast. It turned out perfect. Only one slice was needed for each of us girls, DH had 2 or 3. Very rich, could pass for dessert but what a treat in the Am w/ a good cuppa joe!
This was amazing. I added 1/2 cup of pecans to the caramel mixture, it tasted just like pecan pie...yummy! I agree with other reviewers and next time I won't make it the night before, I'll just soak the bread in the egg mixture in the morning for a little while before popping it in the oven. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
This was great! Really delicious. A very special father's day breakfast. Made is think of cinnamon buns. I added walnuts with the caramel, and cloves and ginger to the egg batter. I pulled it out of the oven 10 minutes early so we had caramel sauce instead of baked caramel. It is a very heavy dish, though. I'd pair it with something like fruit salad, not eggs and bacon.
