I dont normally like french toast but this was sooooo good. I did end up having to throw them in the frying pan to get them to crisp up a bit.

Tried it and my son and husband liked it. The bread came out really soft. Could be on our repeat list.

Delicious, did with std sliced bread and shortened the cooking time would definitely make again as saves the mess of frying it

I didn't use the French bread and refrigerate overnight. Instead, I used some brioche bread I had on hand and refrigerated for about an hour until all the liquid was soaked up. It came out wonderful!! I love this recipe and will definitely do it again!

Sickeningly sweet. I have a big sweet tooth and this was even too much!

I've been making French Toast for years (different recipes), but this is by far my favorite! My husband is a traditional bacon-and-eggs man and usually never wants any carb-based breakfasts, but he requests this almost every weekend; it's so delicious! The first time I made it, I cut the bread pretty thick and the inside didn't cook fully (you need to find what works with your oven). I started slicing the bread thicker than pre-sliced bread but thinner than the picture above, added 15 minutes to the cooking time, and it's perfect! The flavor and texture are amazing; we don't even add syrup; instead, we pile it high with strawberries and bananas. I saw another reviewer mention they couldn't get the brown sugar to bubble. I had that same issue with my oven, so I used non-stick aluminum foil instead of parchment paper and that fixed the problem. Now, my French Toast has a nice glazed side with that incredible crème brûlée flavor! This is favorite in our home, and I would highly recommend it!

I made mine lactose free for my boyfriend using an almond creamer and lactose free milk. It was my first attempt at making french toast and I was pretty happy with it, I couldn't get the brown sugar to bubble like it said in the recipe, but I would definitely make it again
