This one is based on a recipe on allrecipes.com with some changes from me.
Make Ahead French Toast
1 loaf french bread, cut into about 12 1" slices
1 1/2 c. milk
2 t. vanilla extract
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 c. brown sugar
2 T. maple syrup (I just used regular syrup)
1 c. chopped pecan (option, I did not use)
Mix eggs, milk and vanilla in a bowl, pour mixture into bottoms of a 13x9 and an 8x8 square pan. Dip each piece of bread into egg mixture (both sides) and then sit on top of egg mixture in pan. I got 8 in the 13x9 and 4 in the 8x8. Refrigerate over night. In the morning mix together butter, brown sugar, syrup and pecans and spoon mixture over each piece of bread.
Cook at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
Our Review: This was delicious, didn't even need syrup over top! I think it would also be good with cinnamon/sugar mixture over top instead of brown sugar, butter, syrup mixture! Think next time I'll try to make these into french toast sticks and freeze for the girls for breakfasts.
