Baked French Toast

Ala Little River Inn of Aldie, VA
Serves 3-6. Also a good dessert served with ice cream.

This is a wonderful “quick” breakfast, especially for large groups. I used to prepare it for my Bed and Breakfast, doubling or tripling the recipe. You can make it at your leisure and bake it when you wish--so long as it is the next day! It’s great for slumber parties, family gatherings, etc. And it is good as dessert!

½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup butter
2 tbsp. corn syrup, dark or light (dark looks better)
1 loaf French bread sliced into 1 inch thick slices.

5 eggs
1 ½ cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla

In a saucepan, over medium-low heat, mix and melt sugar, butter and syrup. Spray baking dish(es) with PAM. Pour melted mixture into pan(s) and arrange bread slices on it (2-3 slices per person)

In blender mix eggs, milk and vanilla, then carefully pour this mix over bread slices being sure not to miss any areas.

Cover baking dish(es) and refrigerate over night.

Next morning bake, uncovered, in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes and serve directly from the dish. Butter and syrup are not needed. Turn it upside down when serving . . . looks better!
