This is a delicious and versatile recipe. I used leftover garlic bread that was quite dried out so I increased the liquid to 2 c (1 1/2 c milk & 1/2 c fat free half & half). I also added 4 or 5 slices of chopped prosciutto in the center. I assembled this the day before, covered it with foil, refrigerated it and the next day brought it to room temperature and removed the foil and baked it. This is a good recipe to use up leftover bread, cheese or perhaps ham, bacon, etc.

I loved this. I followed the recipe exactly and used dried-up rye and wheat bread cubes.

This was really good, although a bit of an unusual taste. I used an olive oil and basil bread, as its what I had. It was really quick to prepare, and as a whole, we all enjoyed it.
