Much better for you 'cause it's baked, not fried! Can be made the night before too!

Really good recipe... my husband and I liked another recipe better, but the kids LOVED it. It wouldn't be my "go to" recipe, but I would definitely try it again. Next time I would grease the pan more generously... since the bread stuck to the sides and in some parts to the bottom. My favorite thing was the maple syrup mixed together... I just put a tiny bit of syrup on.

After searching for recipes that did not require an overnight soak in the fridge, I made this recipe. I am sooo glad I did. I used 7 pieces of potato bread and this was wonderful!! Super easy recipe! I seriously doubt I will ever make french toast the old way (in a skillet) again. Thank you so much for a great recipe!

Very good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used light syrup. Next time I would cut up the bread and flip it during cooking because it was a bit mushy but oh so very good.
