This is wonderful. I made it for Mothers Day Brunch 2 years ago and my Dad has requested it ever since. It is one of my favorite recipes.

When I baked this in a convection oven for 25 mins at 375, I found the top dry & the bottom too moist & runny. To correct this, I cut the bread slices in half, turned them over & broiled for 10 minutes. The result was perfect - and there were no leftovers.

Great French toast! I actually used Texas toast to make this, instead of the French bread, but it worked out just fine. DH and I agreed that this was rich and wonderful. Don't even think of putting syrup on this stuff! Only the top of this toast will become "toasty". I've submitted a photo...hope it looks as good as it tastes.
