Ingredients

1

8 large

2 c
half and half
1 c
milk
2 Tbsp
granulated sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/4 tsp

1 c

1 c
pecans, chopped
2 Tbsp
light corn syrup
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Slice french bread into 20 slices, 1-inch each. (Use any extra bread for garlic toast or bread crumbs). Arrange slices in a generously buttered 9x13-inch flat baking dish in 2 rows, overlapping the slices.
2
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; beat with a rotary beater or a whisk until blended but not bubbly.
3
Pour mixture over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the milk-egg mixture. Spoon some of the mixture in between the slices. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
4
The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare Praline Topping; combine all ingredients for topping in a medium bowl and blend well. (Makes enough for Baked French Toast).
5
Spread Praline topping evenly over the bread and bake for 40 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden. Serve with maple syrup.
