We used this recipe as a food demo at a local food pantry. They did not have a microwave on site; we altered the recipe by making it in a 8x10 casserole dish. We tore pieces of day old bread and followed the recipe. We baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. We also prepared it in the skillet for the food demo on 300 for about 25 minutes. You can also add fresh fruit or dried fruit (bits of peeled apples and blueberries is a great combo) to the mixture instead of raisins.Everyone raved about this dish!

This is a tasty recipe, but it took about twice the time listed to cook. The middle needed to be cooked longer than the edges to fully be done.

Thanks for sharing that you found this recipe to be tasty. And also for letting us know that the cooking time posted wasn't enough for you. It sounds like you were able to adjust accordingly, but we will also add this recipe to our list for re-testing using microwaves of different wattages. We also plan to adjust the bread ingredient to specify 'cups' of bread rather than slices, since the amount of actual bread used can also affect the cooking time. We hope you'll continue to prepare Food Hero recipes!

A must try...

Love!! Have made this twice already and it WILL become a regular. SO EASY, uses leftovers (no reason to ever throw away bread anymore, super quick and the kids love to help, plus so flexible....have used English muffins and raisin bread and regular or soy milk, and eggs or egg beaters, and raisins or not. A winner! And tastes good with a bit less brown sugar which cuts the calories too....
