Overnight French Toast

This is a wonderful dish.  I made so much that it was even better the morning after for the kids for school! The caramelized syrup on top is yummy!
1/2 melted butter
12 slices left over bread, Texas toast or whatever you have.  *I used Challah bread and it was fantastic*
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg*the best Fall spice ever...*
1/2 cup chopped pecan(optional)
1 tsp vanilla
5 eggs
1 1/2 c milk

Melt butter and pour into the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan.  Mix the brown sugar, nutmeg(and nuts if you are using them) and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside. Whisk eggs, vanilla and milk together.  Put a layer of the bread in the pan on top of the butter and sprinkle the yummy cinnamon mixture over the bread. Put the rest of the bread then pour the eggs over the bread, covering all evenly so the eggs get soaked up well.  Sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon on the top and  cover with foil and refrigerate all night. Heat oven to 350 degrees and bake, covered, for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes.  It should be browned and set and smell delicious.  Pour maple syrup over the top and bake again for 5 minutes until the syrup gets toasty and caramelized. YUMMY! Easy! YAY! Enjoy~
