YUM! So easy to get together the night before and no hassle in the morning! It is good the next morning, too. The syrup gets crunchy and so tasty!
1/2 cup melted butter
12 slices of any left over bread. I used Challah. Texas toast or french would be great as well. If it is older it is better for these type of recipes.
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg *Best spice ever*
1/2 cup chopped pecans*optional*
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups milk
Melt the butter and pour into a 9x13 pan. Combine the cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Throw in the pecans if you are using them as well. Whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla. Layer the bottom of the pan with 1/2 of the bread. Sprinkle 1/2 cinnamon mixture the lay the rest of the bread. Pour the egg mixture over the bread and end with the rest of the cinnamon mixture.Cover and put in the refrigerator over night. When you are ready to bake, remove the old foil and cover with new foil. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, uncover and bake for 15 more. The toast should be browned and set nicely. Take it out of the oven and pour maple syrup over the top and bake another 5 minutes. YUM! Delicious! Enjoy~
