DIRECTIONS

  • Combine eggs, half-and-half, 1 T. brown sugar and vanilla extract in a small bowl, whisk till blended; pour half of the mixture into a baking dish (sized large enough to hold bread slices somewhat compactly).
  • Place bread into dish; top with other half of egg mixture, making sure all parts of bread are saturated with the liquid. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Place butter in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish and set in oven; when butter is melted, stir in brown sugar, honey, maple syrup and pecans.
  • Set soaked bread slices on top of pecan mixture. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
  • Remove with a spatula and invert slices on 2 serving plates. Spoon any extra syrup and nuts on top.
  • Serve immediately with ice cold milk or piping hot coffee.
