This recipe definitely needed some tweaking. I used 6 eggs, 1 c. milk, and cut out the topping entirely. The trick is that you have to use the whole 1 lb. of bread - any less and it's much too custard-like. Slice the bread and put it on a cookie sheet for 15 min. in a 300 deg. F. oven - this will dry out the bread (if you're not using stale bread). Now dump it all in the pan (don't worry about getting it to fit in the bottom of the pan) and pour the liquids over it (beat the eggs very well!). At that point, you can squish all the bread into the bottom of the pan and make sure all of the bread is soaked equally. Bake for about 50 min. and serve with syrup. Yum.
