Leta, this is a FABULOUS make-ahead breakfast dish! So easy and so tasty. I had guests over for breakfast and I served this dish along with my breakfast casserole and fresh fruit. What an easy way to serve a group of people. I had to make copies of your French Toast Casserole for everyone!!! This is surely a dish I will make over and over again. I also made a hard copy of it and it is now in my "keeper" notebook. I'm so glad I found this. Thanks for sharing. :-)rn

Five stars for a delicious breakfast dish that is easy to prepare ahead (which I love). This is a great make ahead dish that turned out moist,sweet, cinnamony and everyone raved over it! I used the thick texas toast bread and increased the eggs by one. It is soooo good.

My family ate the whole dish! This was a huge success. The only thing I might do different is reduce the amount of sugar. I will be making this again soon.
