Baked French Toast

I got this recipe from my friend, Jan, who got it from her friend, Amy Elmore. YUM!

1 cup brown sugar
½ cup butter
2 Tbsp. light corn syrup

1 loaf French bread cut into 1 inch thick slices

5 eggs
1 ½ cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Place first 3 ingredients in medium size saucepan and heat over medium heat. Spray 9x13 inch baking dish with nonstick vegetable oil. Pour hot mixture into baking dish. Place sliced bread over mixture, pushing bread together closely to get more slices into dish.

Mix eggs, milk and vanilla and beat slightly. Pour over bread. Make sure each piece is covered.
Cover baking dish with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight.

In morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees and place uncovered dish in oven for 30 minutes. May be served directly from dish or turned over and served onto plates. Serves 8 - 10.

We started using this on Christmas morning but it's too good not to have it more often. Thanks for sharing this. We love it.
