All the best things about french toast made the night before! Pop it in the oven to bake 50 minutes before enjoying in the morning.


  • 12 slices white bread
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 2 Cups half and half
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Nut Topping

  • 3/4 Cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 Cups brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/3 Cups coursely chopped nuts


  1. Generously grease a 13×9 baking pan.  Layer white bread.
  2. In a bowl combine eggs, milk, half and half, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. In a bowl, combine topping ingredients.  Spread over top of bread.  Bake at 350˚F for 50 minutes or until middle is puffed and golden.  Serve warm.


Can I make this days ahead of time?  No.  I would not let this refrigerate more than 12 hours.  That being said, you can let it refrigerator for only 4 hours to get similar results if you’re making it for breakfsat for dinner.

The top is getting too brown. What do I do?  If you notice the top is getting too crunchy, then cover with a layer of foil.

How do I know when this is done?  You’ll find that the entire pan has puffed up and the top is golden brown.

How do I store the leftovers?  Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  To reheat use the oven.  Microwaving makes it mushy.
