French Toast Casserole

This is a favorite when you're going to have company over, or if you just want to bring it all to work and make your co-workers as plump as could be.

The praline mixture before you scoop it over the bread that has been pre-soaked in the custard mixture.
The bread soaking in the custard mixture overnight, or at least an hour or two.
Ready to eat!

French Toast Casserole:

1 loaf sliced sweet Hawaiian Bread
8 eggs
2 Cups milk
1 Cup cream
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon nutmeg
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Teaspoon salt

1 Cup packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons light corn syrup
1 to 1-1/2 Sticks of very soft butter
1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg
1 Cup chopped pecans

Place bread slices in a 9"x13" buttered pan. Mix the first 8 ingredients and pour over the bread. Cover and refrigerate up to overnight

Drop praline mixture over prepared bread.

Bake @350 degrees in 9"X13" PAN on top of a cookie sheet 35-45 minutes (custard should be completely set.) It took 40 minutes in my oven.
