I found this tasty little gem a few weeks ago and I made it on Memorial Day and was BLOWN AWAY by how delicious it was! The recipe makes a huge batch (12 eggs?!?) so I made a half batch and it still made quite a bit, but the leftovers were still fabulous. I just halved the recipe and baked it in an 8 x 8 pan. I just got a loaf of cinnamon bread from Walmart, and and the loaf must have been smaller because it nearly filled the pan. I assembled everything the night before to let the bread soak, then cooked it in the morning and it worked great! This would be a fun recipe for Christmas morning or a fancy brunch!
