DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Spread 1 c Caramel Sauce in bottom of 13 x 9 pan. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Cut bread into 1-inch cubes. Any large loaf will do, but a nice French bread, or a Challah work especially well.
  • Spread bread cubes onto sheet pan in a single layer. Brown in oven for about 10-12 minutes.
  • Reduce oven to 325. Don't forget this step (the voice of experience speaks)!
  • In a medium bowl, mix eggs, half-and-half, vanilla and salt. Add 1 1/2 c caramel sauce to this mixture.
  • Place bread cubes in a very large bowl and pour mixture over cubes. Toss gently until all cubes are coated.
  • Let stand 20 minutes, gently mixing occasionally. Be sure that there are no dry cubes!
  • Spread the soaked bread over the caramel in the 13 x 9 pan.
  • Bake at lower oven level for 45 minutes.
  • Let cool 30 minutes and serve, drizzled with remaining caramel sauce.
