I make this all the time...I use sweetened condensed milk instead of half-and-half, and I reaplace the french loaf with peppridge farms cinnamon bread. (Sometimes with the raisons if my kids and DH aren't eating!!) VERY GOOD!!!

Was good, but very rich. For some reason, I don't like to eat very sweet things for breakfast. Was also a little 'eggy' tasting. I'd probably not make again.

Absolutely delicious! I made this for out of town company and we all loved it! I substituted evaporated milk for all the milk and it worked fine.
