YES! This is the recipe I had many, many years ago. I could never find the exact same one, and all else paled in comparison. Thank you so, so, so much.

PS ... If anyone wants to make it, too ...

RE: For Nancy: Overnight Carmelized French Toast

Bonnie, I'm sure glad you posted this recipe for Nancy. I just printed it off for myself and will be trying it. Sounds so yummy. Have you ever used french bread with this recipe?


Won't let me post with the old heading...

I did, when I made it years ago. I remember the first time I cut off all of the crust. The next time, and every time after, I left the crust on. So much better.
I am so happy to have it again. I am e-mailing it to myself, so if I every lose the paper I can retrieve it. It's that good!

RE: For Nancy: Overnight Carmelized French Toast

I'm printing this right now, may even give it a try tonight, thanks.

RE: For Nancy: Overnight Carmelized French Toast

Oh yes, French bread with the crust on (as I wrote in my side notes) is the BEST way to go! I'd be making it for tomorrow but DD got a waffle maker for Christmas and has been treating us to fresh waffles for breakfast. Yum!

Enjoy! Happy, Happy New Year!

RE: For Nancy: Overnight Carmelized French Toast

Oh this sounds Heavenly and French Toast is one Of DH's favorite Breakfasts...
I printed out a copy of this and will Surprise him one morning with it.
Enjoy your Waffles with DD..great gift.
I got a Belguim Waffle Maker a few yrs ago from Costco, and love it...Made some this morning for the Gkids before they left.
Happy New Year.


RE: For Nancy: Overnight Carmelized French Toast

One of the best things about this recipe (besides the incredible caramelized scrumptiousness) is that you do it all the night before, and just pop it into the oven in the morning. A great treat on a busy morning. I'm making it Sunday; my dh's b'day and then I drive our oldest back to school. UDel.)

RE: For Nancy: Overnight() Carmelized French Toast

Thanks for the tip Nancy..
Making it ahead is always a treat for the cook
and what a wonderful Birthday Breakfast Treat for DD.
Happy Birthday to her..and have a Safe Trip.


RE: For Nancy: Overnight Carmelized French Toast

Oops ... meant DH's b'day.
(No girls, except for me and the one's my sons bring home.)
