This does require an overnight soak in the fridge. I usually only make this once a year for Christmas Morning breakfast. It's a special treat that my kids look forward to. Very rich, extremely decadent! Sometimes makes an appearance Easter morning as well. Enjoy!!

2In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Beat with an electric mixer or wisk until well blended, but not too bubbly.

3Pour egg mixture over the bread slices, making sure they are all covered evenly. Spoon some of the mixture in between each bread slice. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

4In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all praline ingredients until well blended. Spread praline topping evenly over the bread slices getting some in between slices.

5Bake for 40 minutes in preheated oven until puffy and light golden brown. Serve with your favorite maple syrup. Enjoy!!
