Christmas Breakfast

We are away from home, but have made plans to make this incredible French Toast!  I thought I should share just in case you need something fast and easy~

Oven Baked French Toast

1 loaf of French bread
8 eggs
1 1/2 C half & half
1 C milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 T sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
dash of salt

Slice bread into 20 one-inch slices. (Our local grocery sells an enriched egg loaf, made in the store. . . really good and eliminates cutting) Arrange in a generously buttered 9×13 baking dish. Layer and overlap the slices.

In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients – beat until blended but not bubbly. Pour mixture over bread slices evenly. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Praline Topping

1/2 C butter
1 C brown sugar, packed
1 C pecans
2 T light corn syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Combine well. Sprinkle over French toast before baking.

Preheat oven to 350, and bake uncovered for 45 minutes, until golden brown. This serves 12. While not diet food this is a GREAT holiday treat!
