This is super easy and quick to prepare. Next time I make it I'm going to double the "praline topping" and use half of it on the bottom of my dish and layer the bread on top of that. Then I'll add the remaining half of praline topping on top as recipe calls for. That way you get praline mixture on the bottom slices of French toast as well as just the slices on the top. Also, felt it needed a little extra time in oven as others suggested. Keeper for sure!
My family really liked this. It reminded us of bread pudding. I used Italian bread, because it's all I had, and decreased the butter by 25%. Also, I made just a half recipe, and baked it in an 8 inch square pan. As others have noted, this casserole is so good, it doesn't need any syrup.
This was so delicious and took no time at all! I made it for my annual Mothers' Day brunch. No one felt the need for maple syrup. I substituted a dense bakery bread (couldn't find challah) and used only 1/2 c half-n-half and 2 1/2 c soy milk. At the end of baking it did bubble up over the pan so be sure to put a pan underneath. I might try half the butter in the praline topping next time to cut back on the calories. This is a keeper!
Smiley, stickey faces on Sunday morning. Thank you for making the morning special!
Wow how impressive it looks when it comes out of the ovenâ€¦ looks like a souffle! I followed the recipe exactly, except I put it in two pansâ€¦ one for usâ€¦ one for our neighbor. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
Made this for Mother's Day so the kids could give mom something special. It was a spectacular hit.
the praline topping really makes this - it was super easy and baked up wonderfully! I'd definitely make this again!
I made this for Christmas morning. I cooked it about 10 minutes longer than recipe calls for b/c I wanted it crispy on top. It looked impressive, as it was bulging from my 9x13 dish and stood very tall. It was good, a bit rich. I would make it again, but I could only eat a small piece.
I made this for Mother's Day Brunch and it was fantastic! Everyone loved it. I'm not a huge fan of nuts, but the praline topping made the dish! Thank you!
