Make Ahead French Toast

Make Ahead French toast
• 5 eggs, lightly beaten
• 1 1/2 cups milk
• 1 cup half-and-half cream
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1 inch slices

• 1/2 cup butter, melted
• 1 cup light brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons maple syrup
• 1 cup chopped pecans
1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream and vanilla. Dip bread slices into egg mixture and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Refrigerate overnight.
2. The next morning: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
3. In a small bowl, combine butter, sugar, maple syrup and pecans. Spoon mixture over bread.
4. Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
NOTE: If you like firmer French toast, cut back on the milk
