      I absolutely love this recipe and have been making it for awhile; however, I just can't in good conscience feed my family something that has almost 64 grams of fat per serving!! I've made some slight adjustments, and it tastes almost exactly the same, in fact, we like it better - not SO rich and greasy: I use egg beaters instead of whole eggs; whole milk instead of half and half; spray the pan with Pam; cut the topping amount in half. Drops the fat grams to 15-20 per serving - still high, but at least reasonable. But it is a fabulous recipe - enjoy!!

      Loved the praline topping on this. I reaad the reviews about some people finding this soggy after baking. So I looked up other recipes like this one. My findings were that the egg/milk ratio in this recipe were higher then others. The 1 cup of milk was not added when I made this, which worked well. Topping: I melted the butter added everything into the pan stirred and poured over bread mixture. I baked it at 400 degrees for 1 hour. I found that the top burnt because of the higher temp. So next time I will cover with foil for the first 45 minutes. Thank you for posting. I forgot to say I made this for my DD's prom breakfast at our house 4/2008. We have 6 guest here at 4:30 AM

      I think this is wonderful. The first time I made this was for my son's baptism. I made a couple of them the night before and put it in the oven covered with tin foil before we left for the church (reduced the temp. a little too) and let it bake while we were gone. When we got home it was delicious and many guests asked for the recipe. Now I make it every now and than when I just crave it. Due to my sons allergies to milk and tree nuts I use 3 cups of rice milk and leave out the nutmeg and pecan's. I also just make half the topping with crisco and brown sugar and cinnamon. It is still delicious (though I miss the pecans). I don't even let it sit overnight. I just make sure that all the bread is well soaked. It turns out like a bread/custard. You should let it rest about 10 minutes before serving.
