Ingredients

  • Overnight French Toast

  • 1

    loaf day-old french bread, cut into 1/2″ slices

  • Cooking spray or softened butter

  • 5

    eggs

  • 1 1/2

    cups half & half

  • 1/4

    cup brown sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • pinch nutmeg

  • 2

    teaspoons vanilla

  • Streusel Topping

  • 6

    tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1/2

    cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 1/2

    tbsp flour

  • 3/4

    cups chopped pecans (optional–my family doesn’t like it with nuts!)

  • Warm Maple Butter Syrup

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 1/2

    cup real maple syrup

Directions

Lay out the slices of bread to dry out for a few hours. Grease casserole dish with cooking spray or butter; arrange bread slices in layers in dish. Beat eggs with wire whisk; add in half & half, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, & vanilla. Whisk well until brown sugar is dissolved. Pour egg mixture over bread slices so that all slices are moist and well coated. Cover the dish with saran wrap, making sure the saran wrap touches the wet slices. Push down on saran wrap to further soak bread slices. Place dish in refrigerator overnight. The following morning, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make the streusel topping by combining softened butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, flour, & nuts. Sprinkle over french toast. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes until bread is puffy and top is golden brown. While french toast is baking, make the maple butter syrup by heating butter and syrup in a small saucepan over low heat until butter is melted and syrup is warm. Remove french toast from oven; drizzle serve over individual plates of french toast. Serve immediately. Serves 6; for larger crowds, simply double the recipe!
