This recipie is great! I'm not a fan of corn syrup in the topping though i prefer 1 tsp vanilla.

Make sure to pull it out of the oven quickly as it can get dry. Also, make more egg mixture if your loaves of bread are long. I found that I had to make twice as much to have enough to coat the bread.

My family really enjoyed this for breakfast Christmas morning. This deserves waaaay more than 5 stars for taste, presentation and ease of recipe! I sub'd a whole, sliced baguette for the bread and couldn't find the nutmeg in my cupboard so I left that out. It didn't detract from the recipe at all. The crunchy topping was devine. We drizzled some warm maple syrup over each serving and next time I won't forget the powdered sugar dusting! I baked it in a stoneware dish on 350*f. for about 45 minutes. Tres delish! We'll make this many more times, Im sure.
