~baked french toast~

Do you want to make the best mothers day breakfast ever?
I usually make this on Christmas morning.
It's so rich I try and limit myself to it once a year.
However, I think I may just treat myself to it on mothers day.
If you make it, it's sure to be a hit.


Ingredients
1 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1 inch slices
8 eggs
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter
1 1/3 cups brown sugar
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
Directions
Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, preheat oven to 350
degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup; heat until bubbling. Pour over bread and egg mixture.
Bake in preheated oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

A couple of days ago I made DustyLu's Potato salad and it was great!!! we eat it for 3 days...Now your French toast better not do that to us, I am not sure we can handle any more calories :)
