Baked French Toast with Honey Pecan Sauce

This is our favorite Christmas breakfast.

Ingredients:

4 eggs beaten

¾ cup half and half

½ Tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

4 thick slices French Bread

¼ cup butter (1/2 stick)

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ cup honey

¼ cup maple syrup

¼ cup chopped pecans

Combine eggs, half and half, brown sugar and vanilla extract in small bowl.  Pour half the mixture into baking dish.  Place the bread on top and pour the other half of mixture on top.  Refrigerate covered overnight.

Melt butter in 9 x 13” baking dish and stir in brown sugar, honey, maple syrup and pecans.  Add soaked slices of bread.  Bake at 350 for 30 – 35 minutes until puffed and brown.  Serve immediately

This does not need syrup or butter after baking because of the sauce it is baked in, but when reheating it might need some syrup so it's not dry.
