One word - YUM! I was nervous about this turning into a mushy mess at a brunch I was hosting for some girlfriends. The friend I was honoring at the brunch hates swiss cheese, so I opted for gruyere instead. I ended up doubling the topping recipe because the existing amount didn't even cover half the casserole. I don't know if that was the intent, but doubling the topping was a total winner. It crisped up amazingly well and had a fantastic crunch to balance the soggier bread that had been sitting in the egg bath. Everyone loved it and some people asked for the recipe. I will definitely make it again.
