A friend brought this recipe to a brunch event and we all gobbled it down. It comes from an issue of "Cooking Light" magazine. It is a perfect addition to any breakfast/brunch.

Yum! The whole family enjoyed this for breakfast this morning. I used 8 slices of Orowheat potato bread, cut in half and stacked, so got 8 servings instead of 6. Made sure to soak both pieces of bread with the egg mixture before stacking. It was delicious, but the bread on the underside was a little too wet. Day old French bread really would have been a better option and I'll do that next time. By the way, you'd never think "light" when you eat this for breakfast. Love those Cooking Light recipes! Thanks for sharing!
