French Toast Casserole

French Toast Casserole

This is the perfect breakfast for a lazy Saturday morning. Or in our case, Thanksgiving morning! I made this last year for Mike and I am officially making it a tradition for our family. I mean, you make it the night before, pop it in the oven a few while your coffee is brewing, and voila! You have a comfy cozy breakfast to chow down on while you're watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Shopping List
1 loaf French bread, torn into bite-size pieces
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
powdered sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Arrange bread in a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan; set aside

Beat to ether next 6 ingredients, pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight

The next morning, take the butter, maple syrup, brown sugar and pecans and mix them together in a bowl to a crumbly mix. Spread mix over casserole as your topping and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. (Check after about 30 minutes and if it's getting too brown on top, cover with foil and continue cooking)

Dust with powdered sugar and let stand 5 minutes before serving
