How to Make Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup

Step-by-Step

  • 1The night before begin the preparation, it is best to sit overnight.
  • 2Slice French bread into 1 inch slices, @20 slices, arrange slices in a generously buttered 9 by 13-inch flat baking dish in 2 rows overlapping the slices.
  • 3In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and whisk until blended but not too bubbly.
  • 4Pour 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.
  • 5Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
  • 6The next morning preheat oven 350 degrees
  • 7Make the Praline Topping by combining all the Praline ingredients together in a bowl, mix well.
