Overnight French Toast

This recipe is so easy and delicious(if you like sweets for breakfast.) It tastes like a giant cinnamon roll. I made this for a baby shower on Sat. Watch it carefully, it puffed up in the oven and ran over.

Overnight French Toast

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks)butter
2 tsp. cinnamon
18 slices Italian or French bread
3 cups milk
6 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

Mix the brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in pan. Lay some of the bread slices in bottom of a well greased 9 x 13 pan. Drizzle part of the butter mixture over the bread, add more bread, repeating to make 3 layers, ending with the drizzle mixture.

Mix the remaining ingredients, and pour over the bread. Cover with foil, and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 for 1 hour covered, then for 15 minutes uncovered. I found that I had to bake a little longer (maybe 15 minutes more) but remember, it's supposed to be moist and not dry looking.

It's so sweet you don't even need to use butter or syrup. It tastes delicious re-heated or cold, too if there's any left for later!!! It smells so good baking you'll want to get up early in the morning just to taste it!
