    Very good and pretty easy. It's a wonderful but rich breakfast. Make this and an egg cheese bake for a sweet and savory brunch combo.

    Absolutely delicious!!! Make something savory to go with like scrambled eggs because it is very sweet.

    We make this French Toast recipe whenever we have company for brunch. Love it that you make it the night before.

    This was good. Might try mixed berries with the bananas next time. I used Texas Toast sliced in half, instead of Italian bread. It still turned out good.

    How do I go about getting 1/4 of an egg is I am making for 2 people or 1/2 of an egg if making for 4 people?

    The recipe was a bit sweet and would be delicious even with 3/4 cup of sugar!

    It was good but too sweet and the banana and strawberries were too soggy and soft. Did anyone have this issue?

    I was quite pleased with the recipe and I thought the idea of using the italian bread was a nice twist. I think however, next time I will use a mixed berry.

    Outstanding!! So delicious. I made it for a fun dinner with scrambled eggs. You have to have something savory with this dish because it is very sweet. Put some Reddi Whip on top and it was over the top good. Would definitely impress company.
