Make Ahead French Toast


Here it is without the pecans


  • 5 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 TBSP orange juice
  • 1/2 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1″ slices
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream and vanilla. Dip bread slices into egg mixture and place in well-greased 9×13. Refrigerate overnight.

The next morning, Preheat oven to 350.

In a small bowl, combine butter, sugar, syrup and pecans. Spoon mixture over bread.  Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.  Serves 8
