    great! unfortunately made this on a whim and didn't have all that it called for (French bread, orange juice, half and half) and threw it in the freezer 4 about 10 minutes while oven was Heating... But based on how it still came out I'm excited to try it with the proper planning :-)

    Great - I would also try with cinnamon. Didn’t soak overnight - just for about 30 minutes and still was quite good.

    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.

    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
