Overnight French Toast

"I discovered this dish last year while hosting a family reunion here in the Pocono Mountains. My niece brought it and shared the recipe. It's a great dish to make ahead of time and freeze; then you'll have a fancy but easy-to-prepare breakfast whenever you host overnight guests."

  1. In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs. Mix in cream, sugar, rum extract if desired, vanilla and nutmeg. Place the bread in a single layer in two well-greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Pour the egg mixture over bread in each pan. Turn bread over to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 20-22 minutes or until golden.
  2. Meanwhile, for syrup, bring brown sugar, corn syrup and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Add pecans and butter; simmer 2 minutes longer. Serve with the French toast.

I made this recipe because it only took 20 minutes in the oven. I had to provide a 7am breakfast for the swim team that was quick, and easy to transport. It was a hit, and I did not use prelea...

Cut recipe in half and used one loaf french bread. Soaked bread for only an hour or two and then fried it in a pan to cook. Replaced rum extract with 1/4 cup Captain Morgan. Yummy and a crowd-pl...

Recipe was very easy and quick to prepare. I was worried that my bread was too stale...pretty hard around the outside, but it worked great. The toast was some of the best I've ever had...but a...
