French Toast Casserole

A breakfast for a coworker recently at work who is changing offices.  I got this recipe from a message board I have read for years.  The ladies on there share some really good recipes.  This is one of those overnight casseroles that is so easy for a morning when you have things to do while it bakes.  A friend of mine and his wife sent me some wonderful genuine New York Maple Syrup.  Although this is sweet enough without, it was a great addition for those who wanted a little something extra.


1 loaf cinnamon bread ( I used Sara Lee) with or without raisins
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup nuts (I used pecans)

Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam.  Tear up the bread. Mix the eggs, milk, 1/2 and 1/2, vanilla and cinnamon together.  Pour over bread and press down to get break soaked. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, mix the topping ingredients until they crumb.  Sprinkle over the casserole. Bake 350 for 40 minutes until golden brown.
