Reviewed french toast casserole with brown sugar-walnut crumble

Monday 8 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

We really enjoyed this. The Italian bread helped it to stay a little more firm, without it turning into a bread pudding like mush. To those who say this is a Paula Deen rip off, it's not. Paula Deen did not invent baked French toast casserole - there are lots of recipes out there like this, so please don't rate this recipe 1 star because you have...

We absolutely loved this. My hubs is not a pickle fan, but he said the pickles really made the dish. We make Rachael's Sloppy Joe recipe frequently, so this was just a few extra steps to make something different and it was a winner.

I've made this several times since the original show and we enjoy it very much. I usually make it for Sunday brunch and it has been a hit with my guests. I made it once for dinner and now that I think of it, I need to add it to this week's dinner menu.

Absolutely delicious. The second time I made the recipe I added a few tiny red potatoes. We really enjoyed this recipe, and we have it on a regular rotation.

Wednesday, Dec 11, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this recipe numerous times, and just now remembered to post about it. This is so incredibly good. My hubby is not a big couscous fan, but he loves this. Plus, it's so versatile. You can change up the veggies and herbs to whatever is in season. We love thyme and since I have an abundance in my garden, I always add it to this recipe in...

Wednesday, Dec 11, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Wow. Just...wow. This was even better than Ruth's Chris steakhouse. I think heating the cast iron skillet for 10 minutes made the difference. Like another review, this was the first time ever that my husband did not need steak sauce. I purchase all of my beef from Allen Brothers, so the combo of the quality of beef and the cooking method made these...

The video also calls for baking powder, which I failed to add because it was not in the written recipe. They were still okay. The first batch at 15 minutes were almost burnt, so I reduced time to 12 minutes and that was much better. I also added dried cherries. If I make these again, I may add some chopped toasted hazelnuts as well.

So disappointed in this recipe. My pork butt was 7.4 pounds, and we had to cook it an extra 1 1/2 hours for it to reach 190, and no, nothing was wrong with my oven. We had a house full of people for a football game, and I had to run out to the store to buy ingredients to make more appetizers to tide them over until the pork was done. Not happy about...

I made these hens last year and when I asked my husband what he wanted for Thanksgiving this year, he specifically asked for these hens instead of turkey or standing rib roast. I notice many say the cooking time is off, but I find that to be true any time I cook poultry. I start with the stated time, and then go from there using a thermometer to...

"Like the previous review, this reminds me of my grandma's buttermilk pie. A tasty way to use up the last of the buttermilk. Btw, the recipe originally called for 1 3/4 c sugar and 1/4 cup of flour. I don't know why they changed it on the FN site, but it really was quite good baked with those proportions."
