How to Make Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup

Step-by-Step

  1. The night before begin the preparation, it is best to sit overnight.
  2. Slice 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.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and whisk until blended but not too bubbly.
  4. 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.
  5. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
  6. The next morning preheat oven 350 degrees
  7. Make the Praline Topping by combining all the Praline ingredients together in a bowl, mix well.
  8. Spread Praline Topping evenly over the bread
  9. Bake for 40 minutes, until puffed and lightly golden. I placed mine on a cookie sheet, to prevent the overflow spilling in my oven
