Ingredients

  • 1 loaf French bread 13 to 16 ounces
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 Dash salt
  • Maple syrup

Praline Topping

  • 1/2 pound butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions

  • Slice French bread into 20 slices, 1-inch each. (Use any extra bread for garlic toast or bread crumbs).
  • Arrange slices in a generously buttered 9 by 13-inch flat baking dish in 2 rows, overlapping the slices. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and beat with a rotary beater or whisk until blended but not too bubbly. Pour mixture over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the milk-egg mixture. Spoon some of the mixture in between the slices. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
  • The next day, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spread Praline Topping evenly over the bread and bake for 40 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden.
  • Serve with maple syrup. 6 to 8 servings

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and blend well. Makes enough for Baked French Toast Casserole.
