LOVED this recipe. We left off the pecans and doubled the apples, but everything else was exactly as written. PERFECT! Tasted like french toast and bread pudding combo. Brought it to a work brunch and ended up giving out the recipe to all. Will never make "overnight french toast" any other way. Thx!

We love this, after I made some changes : ) 1 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons butter,cinnamon, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, pinch of salt and about 1/3 cup of cream. I added sliced bananas & topped with toasted pecans. HEAVEN!

hmmmm how to review.I did have to sub almonds for the pecans other than that stayed true to the recipe. This would make an excellent bread pudding. That being said, it is WAY too sweet for french toast in our household. Thanks for sharing

This is a special treat every once in awhile. If you don't wait the hour the top gets crunchy which is a nice contrast to the rest. It's great either way.

Excellent. Made the night before (took 10 mins). My french bread was extra thick so I added 8 eggs, keeping the milk the same. Crushed pecans made this awesome. Next time I will double the sauce. Great recipe; thank you so much for sharing.

Delicious! I chopped my apples, but that was my only change. I think next time I may add some cinnamon to either the apples or the egg mixture, just to bring out all the flavors a little more. I will def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

I'm glad that I added this to our Easter Brunch. I kept the nuts off because kids don't always like them. I used one apple and pared off thin slices with the potato peeler to cover the entire bottom of the pan. After putting everything in the pan and topping with the egg mixture I thought it looked a bit dry (my eggs may have been a bit small), so I poured a bit of cream over the top of the dry areas. I may add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the egg mixture next time, but it was delicious as written. Thank you for posting the recipe.
