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.
This is really good! I used Texas Toast(7 pieces) and baked it 45 minutes in a buttered pyrex dish, no sticking. Also, I mixed up the topping that night so all I had to do was put that on in the morning. It puffed up beautifully (and I'm at 7300 ft. so I wasn't sure how it would do!) ---I wish I had taken a picture to post! My son asked why I don't make things like this more often. I will now. Delicious!
I made this for Sunday brunch and everyone loved it! I baked at 350 for about 40 minutes, and I substituted honey for the corn syrup in the topping. I was skeptical about using the French bread, but it turned out really well and didn't get soggy like some breads might have. I ended up using 16 pieces of bread to fill up our 9 x 13 pan. Even though I buttered the pan very well, this stuck to the bottom a lot. Next time I may line the pan with foil. Thanks for posting this--we will defiantely make again!
Made this today and our guests loved it. Very easy to make the night before, and then very little fuss in the morning. I served it with a dusting of powdered sugar and it made a nice presentation on the plate. Mine did stick a little bit on the bottom, but it was easy to lift it up. I served maple syrup and blackberry syrup. Great, easy recipe. I will definitely use it again. Thanks for sharing it.
This is very easy...have to say I greased the pan really good, but it did stick, may try the suggestion of the non-stick foil next tme. Also I'm going to use the Texas toast cut bread, rather than the french bread. I made this for a brunch here at work, and everyone had to have the recipe. I also baked at 350 and put 1 cup of pecans...tasty!!
It does not get any easier than this! I did not have any problems with the French Toast sticking. I baked it in a greased glass casserole dish at 350 for about 35 minutes. Thank you for a great and EASY Christmas breakfast recipe!
OH MY GOSH! Could this be any easier???? My kids ate the whole pan and demanded more for the next day. This was super simple and a great addition to our Bosses Day Breakfast!
We were excited to try an untraditional french toast and, knowing we like all of the ingredients, fully expected to enjoy this. I made it exactly as stated and baked at 350, but after only 30 minutes in the oven the sugar was burning and the nuts had an over-toasted flavor. I will say, the butter/sugar/nut mixture is fabulous and we'll be using that for other things!
