Like Tish, we had this for dinner as my bf & I are fans of unconventional dinners as well. Our ratings are mixed. I found this super simple and quick to make. I only had a 15oz can of peach halves so I halved the recipe & used a slightly smaller baking dish, but the same baking times listed. My bread slices were only 1/2 in. thick. I thought this browned up really nicely, and was kind of pretty the way the bread puffed up. Unfortunately, my bf and I did not like the texture of this; he said "It tastes like baked mushy bread," and I have to agree. We both really enjoyed the flavor though, not too heavy or sweet. The syrup mixture & peaches were very good, and though I didn't save the french toast part, I decided to save what little was left of the peaches/syrup mixture to eat later. I thought the egg mixture perfectly covered the bread. My bf and I both give this a 3 for texture and a 4 for flavor. Both of us just prefer our french bread less mushy & crispier. Thanks for sharing Kyle. :)

I made this for a "breakfast club" we had going at work (28 people). It was easy to make and it was the best french toast casserole dish I had ever tasted! Everyone in the group raved about it. I was quite the celebrity that day. I too, found that no extra syrup is needed because of the juice at the bottom, and yes, a little more egg and milk mixture to cover the bread. Absolutely fabulous!

I made this for a Christmas brunch. I added about 3/4 cup of toasted pecans on top of the peach layer. I forgot to remove this from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking so I just increased the temp a tad and kept it in there about 10-15 minutes longer. It was very good!
