Overnight French Toast...Pinned it and tried it

Delicious! Warm, buttery, caramel goodness...a perfect recipe for brunch.

I pinned it, I tried it, AND I liked it.
I do need to warn you though, it is very sweet and very rich, even for me! One piece was plenty. Brent had no problem eating seconds,though. He might have even have had fact, he also added whipped cream on top!

I love making dishes ahead of time so all you have to do is throw them in the oven. Another bonus...this recipe makes the house smell fantastic!
