Instructions:

Get the French toast base ready: Beat the eggs, heavy cream, whole milk, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a small amount of salt together thoroughly in a sizable mixing basin.

Put the Casserole Together: Use butter or nonstick cooking spray to grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Evenly distribute the French bread cubes in the baking dish. Make sure that every slice of bread is coated when you pour the egg mixture over it.

To allow the bread to absorb the custard mixture, cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least one hour or overnight.

Pecan halves, corn syrup, light brown sugar, unsalted butter, vanilla essence, and a dash of salt should all be combined in a small saucepan. Stir continuously and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the sugar is completely dissolved and the sauce has thickened somewhat. Take off the heat and allow to cool a little.

Recipe Tip:

  • Bread Selection: Choose strong bread, like brioche or challah, that can soak up the custard without getting too messy.
  • Soaking Time: Allow enough time for the custard to soak into the bread. Soaking something in the fridge overnight can make the tastes stronger and make sure they are evenly absorbed.
  • Pecan Topping: To make the casserole taste better, lightly toast the nuts before adding them.
  • Sweetness: You can change how sweet it is to your liking. If you want less sweet dish, you can cut back on the sugar or maple syrup.
