French toast baked with honey pecan sauce
5 large eggs
3/4 cup 1/2 & 1/2
1 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 slices french toast bread
Sauce: 1/2 stick of butter cut into pieces
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Combine eggs, 1/2 & 1/2, brown sugar and vanilla in a small bowl.
Pour half of the egg mixture into a 13 x 9 inch glass dish. Place all bread slices in dish, then pour the rest of the egg mixture over the top - making sure all parts of the bread are saturated. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
In the morning preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in sauce pan. When melted, stir in brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, and pecans. Drizzle this sauce over slices of bread then bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
*If you have an extra sugar craving make whip cream or honey butter for the top.
