  • 9 eggs
  • 3 cups half and half
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1½ t. vanilla
  • ½ t. cinnamon
  • 24-30 slices French bread or Texas toast
  • 1½ cups packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 2 T. butter


In large bowl, lightly beat eggs. Stir in half and half, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Arrange bread in single layer in two greased 15-by-10-by-1-inch baking pans. Pour egg mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 400 F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

To make Praline Syrup, combine brown sugar, corn syrup, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 3 minutes. Stir in pecans and butter. Simmer 2 minutes longer. Serve with French Toast.
