      wow this is really really good! I cooked this for my roomates for a sunday brunch. the recipe is simple enough, and the smell was just soooo mouthwatering. word of caution, make sure you use a different skillet or a cleaned skillet before you cook the toast. we didn't do that and the little bit of cararmel sauce left in the pan kinda bunrt (which smelled even better, but that's not the point :). I brought "day-old" challah from a very nice bakery for half the price, and it tasted yummy all the same. Thank you, I will forward this recipe to all my friends!

      This was my pear weekend. I reduced the recipe to 2 servings using Splenda brown sugar blend for the sauce. I did find that it is necessary to watch the bread closely as the brown sugar sprinkled on burns easy. My pears/brown sugar combo never really produced a sauce possibly due to the use of Splenda but the pears were nicely glazed. I did sprinkle in a couple of tablespoons chopped pecans into the mix. A nice brunch treat.

      Ah, I just kept burning the sugar, darnnit! I'll have to make it again, but from what I could tell (thru various burnt pieces), AMAZING! Maybe I should NOT do these in a cast iron???
