I just made this today for Father's Day breakfast and we all loved it! It is from the Deen Bros. Cookbook and is truly wonderful! As they say, "it's a recipe worth waking up for."

5 BRIGHT STAR! Looks like Paula Deen did well in teaching her boys, this was very good . . . and easy too! Followed the directions with the exception of the cayenne pepper! We had 8 for breakfast so doubled the recipe. I used day old french bread in 9 x 13 pans-- was only able to get 8 slices in each pan. Thanks Rose for another great recipe!

My husband and I did not like this at all. You did not specify where to add the butter and sugar mixture so I added it to the milk and egg mixture.
