I loved this recipe,easy and very creamy. I took another members suggestion and added more cinnamon, I also thought it too sweet next time I will reduce the amount of sugar.

I made this today for thanksgiving and it was a dud. I thought it needed alot more than a pinch of cinnamon and it wasn't very tastey. Maybe more cinnamon and sugar.

This recipe is very rich but, will it ever make your mouth water! I have made this a over and over with nothing less than great reviews. Thank you Joey.

This recipe came out very good but I kinda goofed through it. Mine was very thick & custardy with a nice crusty top even though I realized after I skipped the 'toast bread' step. Mine was already a couple of days old and nice and firm which helped to spread the butter and not smoosh the bread. I had to use about 3 cups heavy whipping cream and 2 cups half&half as that is what I had on hand. It wasn't grainy at all even without a water bath which I really liked. I also accidently dumped quite a bit of cinnamon after the shaker top fell off (oopsie!) but if this hadn't happened I think it may have been too bland. I will make this again with the same 'adjustments'. Yummy!

I make this very often. I use up my old bread and send it to my grandmother...she loves it. I don't care for bread pudding, but I like this one.

Very rich with a good flavor, but kind of messy to make and not as custardy as I prefer. Overall very good tho! Try it!

My family loves this! It is true comfort food. I halve the recipe and use less sugar (4 Tbsps butter, 8 slices bread, 6 eggs, 1-1/2 Tbsp vanilla, 2-1/2 cups half-n-half and 3/4 cup sugar). I sprinkle with cinnamon and bake it in a 9 by 9 inch baking dish for 40 to 45 minutes and serve with whipped cream and fresh berries.

Needs more cinnamon but otherwise is really good. A sauce to serve on top wouldn't hurt either. Eating it hot with vanilla ice cream on the side would take it over the top!
