  1. Can I make this with French bread that is uncooked? Do I cook the French bread first and then do the fillings after and cook it more

  2. How many slices do you think I could get out of the loaf? I want to try it for my Sunday school brunch but I have to feed about 50

  3. I make a similar version of this and it is always well received. I like it much, much better than a strata. It is easy to make different ones, say with sausage, ham, different cheese, or some pre-sauteed veggies (that won’t throw off too much water) in the mix. I always add more cheese on top, but I am a cheese-lovin’ gal! It doesn’t say what size the loaf is (inches/weight) but I find that the wider, larger loaves are better. (What size did you use?) If the bread is crisp, it is sometimes hard to eat easily with a knife and fork, so I cut them on the thinner side, and let everyone know they can be eaten with fingers. (I know, we are just soooo uncouth at our house!)
