This is soooooo good. I have a question for the test kitchen. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I didn't like that it was kind of hard on the top. Would it work to add the second batch of caramel sauce over the top either just before baking or at some point during the baking process so it all would be gooey and yummy like the bottom slices of bread?

Hi there Terri! Thank you for your comment! We do not suggest putting the caramel sauce on before or during baking. We suggest covering for 30 minutes, then removing the cover for the last 15 minutes to make it golden.

Thanks, Test Kitchen. It made more than I could eat my myself, so I gave some away and froze some. I flipped it upside down so the gooey part was on top, and it was even better when I reheated it. Next time I will cover it for part of the baking time. One of the best recipes I have tried all summer!!!

Great! We're so glad you enjoyed it!

do you bake this covered

not a good recipe for one person, thanks, if I ever have a reunion of my ww2 buddies, will try it.l

donmow5621349...Just divide the ingredients by 4, I do this all the time, since most recipes are for more than we have!

Sounds great, can't wait to make it when my new stove with a working oven comes!
