    Juenessa's Note:

    The beauty of this recipe is that it's baked, not cooked on the stovetop, and you can put everything together the night before. In the morning, put the soaked bread in the oven, and by the time the juice is squeezed and the table is set, you'll have French toast, hot and sweet, baked to a golden crisp.

      Very good. I did do a couple things different. I didn't have any Italian bread on hand, so I used day old wonder bread. I soaked in half and half (didn't have enough milk) mixture over night. One thing I will definitely do different - I'll spray the pan with Pam spray after buttering it, and still butter both sides of the bread - as mine stuck to the pan and was a bear to get out. May I didn't have enough butter on it to begin with? Since I used a thinner sliced bread, I only used 1 cup of milk. I also threw it on the griddle after baking it, to give it a more french toast like texture. My guests really liked it - and he's a very picky eater. Thanks for posting!
