  1. I find that bumping the heat up to 400 has a better result. I cut the butter to 1/3 cup the second time I made it, and we didn't notice a quality difference... so better light! Today I tried 1/4 cup butter, which was also really good. Also, I use brown sugar for sprinkling... approximately 1/3 cup. <br/><br/>Really good recipe that I'll make again... it's easier than making smaller quantities on the stovetop and tastes great. Thanks.
     
  2. This recipe, with a few minor tweaks, might be the best recipe I've come across for French Toast! I used 1/3 cup butter instead of 1/2 cup (and I feel like it was still pretty "buttery"). Instead of a whole loaf, I used 8 slices of Old Italian Bread from Franz Bakery. I made a "three-quarters" batch of the remaining ingredients. I preheated the oven to 400 degrees and baked the bread for 25 min, flipping it over when 20 min had passed. Finally, I combined 1/3 cup brown sugar with 1/4 tsp cinnamon and sprinkled about 2/3 of the resulting mixture on the melted butter, laid the bread on top, and sprinkled the remaining mixture on top. This recipe is so good!
     
  3. Excellent! I made this for Christmas morning and everyone loved it. I made it more like a bread pudding casserole with torn bread pieces in a 9x13 pan. The top was a little crunchier than I would have liked . . . when I make this again I'll probably cover the pan for a bit. Thank you for sharing. Most similar recipes recommend overnight soaking; I didn't miss that step a bit!
     
  4. This was delicious! I made it with eggnog instead of milk for Christmas breakfast. It was fantastic. I agree that the butter could be cut. We'll definitely be making this again.
     
  5. Loved it! Made this for supper along with some turkey bacon and canned pears. I had medium eggs so I used 6 of them and the whole amount of milk. I also added a couple of TBS of flour while whisking the eggs (just how I make my french toast). I dipped each piece of french bread in the egg mixture while the margarine was melting (next time I think real butter would be better) and then put each piece of bread on the tray after liberally sprinkling with cinn/sugar and spooned a bit of the egg mixture on top of each piece just before putting in the oven. At the end of 30 min baking time, it wasn't as crisp as I'd have liked so I flipped it over and broiled the top for a min or so until brown. Changes I'm going to try next time: real butter instead of margarine, cinnamon with BROWN sugar sprinkled onto the butter and baking at a higher temp to crisp the bread a bit more and avoid using the broiler. And I wanted to add that for making french toast, I always buy the discounted day old french bread - it's cheap and works perfect for this use! I LOVE this recipe/concept and will make it often!
