    A crowd pleaser I will make again. I cut the sugar and butter in half, eliminated the salt and used Cointreau. I too appreciated having breakfast prepared the night before and just popping it in the oven in the morning.

    I thought this casserole was absolutely delicious! My husband and I thought this tasted a lot like creme brulee, too. I had to bake it for an hour to get the top nice and toasty. I will most definitely make this one again!

    A friend shared this recipe with me and I had to make it. I've made it a couple times now and loved it. Great to make right before going to bed and put it in the fridge so all I have to do in the morning is put it in the oven. Thanks for sharing!

    I don't think I would make this for breakfast again, it is too sweet, and more like a bread pudding. However, I would make this as a dessert again with some whipped cream and some ice cream.
