This was really yummy and quick to put together. I made it as written other than making a half-recipe instead of full quantity. I used plain old whole wheat, store-bought, sandwich bread. Had my doubts about using it for something like this, but it tasted great. I bet it would be even better with a better quality bread. This reminds me of bread pudding in taste and texture, but not quite as wet/custardy as a true bread pudding. This made a very enjoyable breakfast partnered with some soy sausage and fresh fruit. Thank you for contributing such a great recipe!
Oh my, this was good. I should probably be embarrassed to admit that I devoured 2/3 of the casserole dish when it came out of the oven.... I couldn't stop eating. I took a suggestion from another review and dropped it down to 3 eggs. I used plain old white sandwich bread, but I'd love to make it for a brunch w/a special bread (maybe challah?).
As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew that I had to try it and that it would be great. It is! It's very easy to prepare and is delicious. My only change was to add a little more bread for the amount of liquid, which turned out well. This smelled so good that I could hardly wait for it to finish baking before digging in. This is a keeper that I can't wait to share with family and friends. I'll be making this again and again, maybe next time with cubed ham in it. It was a gloomy day, good for staying in and baking and this certainly made my day a lot brighter and sweeter! Thanks for a really good recipe!
