This has been a staple for brunches at family events for many years. I think the sauce is what makes it special!

This is such a wonderful, warm, and delicious recipe. Its probably one of the best overnight recipes that I have tried so far. Breakfast is my favorite meal, and I've found another great way to serve it. It really is sweet enough without the syrup, but I did serve it with maple, instead of the one listed. Lots of compliments, and I will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

I made this for my extended family. What a hit! Next time I will experiment with making more caramel mixture and eliminating the syrup. This is one terrific recipe!
