French Toast Casserole

This yummy casserole is perfect for when company comes to town. I am making this for tomorrow morning, since my sister and her family are coming today for the weekend. This needs to be prepared the night before so the egg mixture can fully be absorbed by the bread. Each time I make this, it is a huge hit and there are never left overs! In fact, the last piece is eyed by everyone to see who gets to take it:)

1/2 C Melted Butter
2 T. Light Corn Syrrup
3/4 C Light Brown Sugar
8 Eggs
1 Cup Milk
1 T Vanilla Extract
1 T Cinnamon
French Bread
-Melt butter and combine with corn syrrup and brown sugar. Spread on bottom of 9x13 dish.
-Mix eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
-Slice bread in 1-inch slices and layer on top of butter mixture.
-Pour egg mixture on top and refrigerate over night. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. When finished baking, pour syrrup over top and sprinkle with powdered sugar and chopped pecans if desired.

We had company this weekend and I made easy to prepare and loved getting up on Saturday a.m. and popping it in the oven. This recipe is delicious!
