Baked French Toast

Adapted from Homemade Gourmet




16  ounce  loaf French bread  

8  large  eggs  

1  cup  half and half  

1  cup  milk  

1/2  teaspoon  salt  

1    Homemade Gourmet® Spiced Dip Mix (or 4 tablespoons of pantry staple) 

1  teaspoon  vanilla  


1  cup  butter, softened  

1    Homemade Gourmet® Old Fashioned Apple Crisp  

1/2  cup  packed brown sugar   

3/4    cup pecans  

1/2  teaspoon  nutmeg  

    Maple syrup or honey to serve over French Toast  



1. Slice bread into 1-inch slices. Arrange the slices in a generously buttered 13x9x2 baking dish in 2 rows, overlapping the slices.


2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, half and half, milk, vanilla, Spiced Dip Mix and salt; beat with mixer or whisk until blended, but not too bubbly. Pour over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the mixture, spooning some of the mixture in between the slices. Cover with foil; refrigerate over night.


3. Preheat oven to 350. Combine Praline topping ingredients (butter, apple crsip mix, brown sugar, pecans, nutmeg) in a medium bowl and spread evenly over bread. Bake for 55 – 60 minutes, or longer; until puffed and golden. Serve with maple syrup or honey.
