We had this at my mom’s for Christmas brunch. It was yummy and easy to make up the night before so there was no hassle the next day except to throw it in the oven.
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup margarine
2 tsp cinnamon
18 slices French bread (you could use regular bread too)
3 cups milk
6 beaten eggs
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Melt brown sugar, margarine and cinnamon in a pan. Lay some of the bread slices in bottom of a well greased 9x13 pan. Drizzle part of the butter mixture over bread, add more bread and repeat, ending with drizzle mixture. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over bread.
You can store this in the fridge overnight or do it up the morning of. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour, covered, then 15 minutes uncovered.
This is great to make for a group if you don't want to spend the entire morning over a griddle making traditional french toast.
