From
Ingredients:
1 loaf bread or croissants sliced
3 cup Milk
6 Eggs
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
6 tablespoons Butter
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3/4 cups Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Maple Syrup

Steps:

  • Arrange enough bread slices (or Croissants cut in 1/2) to cover bottom of 13x9" pan in a single layer. Layer remaining bread overlapping at an angle, over bottom layer.
  • Whisk milk,with eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Evenly pour mixture over bread as shown. Cover pan; refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat oven o 350. Bake 30 + minutes or until lightly browned and custard is set. Meanwhile, in a pot over low heat, melt butter with sugar and syrup, whisking occacionally. Remove casserole from oven. Evenly pour syrup over slices. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until bubbling. let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Sometimes I add more milk and eggs....it makes the dish more "custard-like"
  • This is the simplest way to get Rave Reviews....be prepared to give the recipe out, because they will ask! I use skim milk...you could even leave off the "Brulee" topping for a "slimmer" version.
