Things that I changed: I sprinkled some extra cinnamon on top before putting it in the fridge.
Things that I would do differently next time: I don’t think an overnight recipe should have the bread slices laying on top of each other. I would definitely cube your french bread if you make this. If you want to lay them on top of each other, barely have them overlap.
Will I make this again? Yes. It was delicious. But I will cube the bread next time.
Recipe from: Six Sisters
6-8 large eggs (I only had 6 eggs left, and it worked just fine!)
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
Praline Topping, recipe follows
Spread Praline Topping evenly over the bread and bake for 40 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden. Serve with maple syrup.
1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, melted
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
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and blend well. Makes enough for Baked French Toast Casserole.
