It was a hit. 4 people ate 3/4 of the pan. I added crumbled bacon on top and cut back on the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. Super easy and great results. It’s a keeper! Read More

This was very good! I did cut back on the brown sugar a little (1 1/4 cups total) but otherwise made it as written. Will definitely make again. Read More

Used regular bread because didn't have the french. Reduced the butter to 1 stick. Reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup as another reviewer. Used reconstituted evaporated milk (NOT condensed milk). Will use recipe again and if I have fresh fruit or raisins I think this could be added as a middle layer for some variation. All enjoyed the recipe. Read More

**Disclaimer: I cut WAY back on the brown sugar. It calls for 2 cups of brown sugar which seemed like a lot for our taste, because we like to top with maple syrup. So for that reason, I only used a 1/2 cup of brown sugar. And for the 2 cups of milk, I did one cup milk, one cup half and half for a richer consistency and taste. It was delicious!! Next time I may cut my bread a bit thinner (maybe an inch and a half instead of 2 inches thick). And since all the yummy carmelized butter and sugar was on one side, I might try putting some of that mixture over the top too. But will definitely make this one again. Thanks for the recipe Tina!

This is so good. I ate much more than I should have. Most casseroles like this are mushy, and this one isn't! Perfect texture with crunchy crust and soft middle. I flipped it on my plate so the sugary part was on top. My only small complaint is that the sugar mixtures sticks to the bottom of the pan, but it was worth thr effort to scrape it off. Yum!!
