    I loved the fact that this can be assembled the night before and then just pop it in the oven the next morning. This will be a great recipe to make when we are traveling with friends in our motorhome. Thanks for sharing, Margo59. This is a winner.

    I so cheated with this recipe! I used prepared caramel. Poured enough to cover the bottom of the pan, then proceeded with the recipe using 6 slices of bread total and a quarter of the remaining ingredients. Didn`t chill just made sure the egg mixture was evenlt throughout the bread. It was fabulous! As removing from oven it was nicely puffed but as slicing it came down. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe.

    Not sure how to rate this, so I'm going middle of the road.MAde this for father's day breakfast. The bread was soggy and it was just way too sugary sweet. Sorry. The kids however loved it.

    I've made this from the same ToH recipe - it rocks! It's great for those Sunday mornings when I am in charge of bringing breakfast. Sprinkle some chopped pecans on top of the caramel before putting the bread slices on and it's almost like Pecan Caramel Rolls.
