OMG i loved the flavor in this recipe. I did change it around a bit. I was having a crowd up to the lake so I made it into a casserole instead of french toast. I spread the cheese mixture on the bread and then cut them up into cubes and put them into a casserole, added the egg mixer,dolloped some lemon curd on top and put it in the fridge until morning. I baked it at 350 for about 45 min. it was wonderful. thanks

My family enjoyed these! I used nonfat milk in place of the half and half and I'm sure that makes a difference as it was a little runny due to the milk. (Make sure to use half and half). The lemon flavor was light and you don't need any syrup on these as they taste yummy on their own!
