I loved this. It was so tasty and great becuase you can make it ahead of time and the next day it takes no time at all to prep. Perfect for christmas day.

This tasted ok. Some of the batter didn't absorb into some of the bread. So we had some dry toasty parts and some soggy parts. Maybe I'll try it again, and dip the bread into the batter before putting in the pan. That way each price would be evenly covered.

Made it this morning. Wonderful! Will make it again. Not overly sweet and we love the pecans.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy! Very easy to make and great to take to a brunch. You may have to downsize to a smaller pan; when I laid the bread down, it didn't make enough for a 9" x 13" baker.

So yummy! Followed the recipe exactly except I used gluten free bread. Made it for my dad and my husband.... My dad didn't even know it was gluten free because it was so freaken amazing! Couldn't be easier and the toasted nuts give it a bit of saltiness. Yum yum!

DELIGHTFUL! I will 110% be making this dish again. It was wonderful and completely satisfying. I'm actually eating the leftovers (with a brunch egg bake) for lunch right now, and it's even better than it was last night. I made the French toast exactly as is the night before I served it, warmed up the pralines syrup mixture, spooned on top of the bread, and baked it. It was grand. I cannot say enough good things about this recipe. My family raved about it for ten minutes; they could not stop talking about how good it was. I paired this dish with the brunch egg bake that I also found on this site. It was a wonderful brinner to put the two together! I'm so, so glad I tried this recipe.

This was good although I thought it was a little sweet. I think the syrup in the sauce was a little much. If I make it again I will maybe add a little milk instead of the syrup to make more of a caramel type sauce but allow the individuals to put on their own syrup as needed. Nice change from the usual though, thanks for sharing.

Very easy and delicious. I made it this morning for Christmas breakfast and everyone loved it. At first I didn't think it would have been enough sauce, but it was perfect and plenty sweet!! Nice change from the usual Christmas morning monkey bread. Also, I had to cook it a little longer than suggested, but could just be differences in ovens.
