I made this for Easter breakfast and it was delicious! I followed the exact directions except that I used Pepperidge Farm Brown Sugar Swirl Bread instead of French bread. It looked as good as it tasted. I will definitely make this again.
This recipe is amazing! So easy to make and tastes soooo good. Everyone loved it!
