I love putting ingredients together the night before for a breakfast to pop in the oven. Great for family or company. Very good and easy. I don't like mushy french toast and this was not at all. Cook until golden brown for crispy edges. I overlapped the bread pieces to get them to fit

This is a great recipe - and easy. My company really enjoyed it. The only change I would make is to add a little salt - maybe a pinch (1/8 t) to the brown sugar mixture and 1/4 t to the egg mixture.

Fantastic from the first bite! Great without syrup and the pecans make it outstanding. It was a Wonderful way to use forgotten freezer loaves of french bread too. Would serve to company anytime but why wait!
