This recipe came from an old issue of Taste of Home. It is so delicious and great for company. You mix it up the night before and bake in the AM. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.

I loved the fact that this can be assembled the night before and then just pop it in the oven the next morning. This will be a great recipe to make when we are traveling with friends in our motorhome. Thanks for sharing, Margo59. This is a winner.

I so cheated with this recipe! I used prepared caramel. Poured enough to cover the bottom of the pan, then proceeded with the recipe using 6 slices of bread total and a quarter of the remaining ingredients. Didn`t chill just made sure the egg mixture was evenlt throughout the bread. It was fabulous! As removing from oven it was nicely puffed but as slicing it came down. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe.
