A delicious fall treat, perfect for dessert (or breakfast- it has eggs, bread and milk in it…)
Choose your favorite bread, bakery bread or bagged bread- I love to use the Pepperidge farm swirl bread for even more flavor, especially brown sugar or pumpkin spice!
**This often goes on sale and I will buy a few and freeze them, recipes like this are perfect for frozen bread. This makes a fabulous dessert to serve on Thanksgiving so you have an option other than pie.
A welcome dessert to brunch, or any holiday get together.
