Great flavor! I cut the recipe to 1/3 for the two of us and used up some odd pieces of sourdough bread from the freezer. Only change I made was to use brown sugar for the topping! Nice getting up this morning and just having to pop in the oven! Thank Carol!

I made this for Christmas morning as there are very young grand children around and so we do a Christmas brunch instead of dinner. Everyone is too tired for dinner due to the very early rising :). I made as written except I had some cinnamon pecan swirl bread from Great Harvest. It was absolutely heavenly. Thanks for submitting this recipe!
