 French Toast Casserole
Six to eight servings

1/2 cup unsalted butter
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
One loaf French bread, sliced
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and maple syrup, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Arrange the slices of bread on top of the sugar mixture.

In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, vanilla, and salt. Pour it over the bread. Cover and chill for at least eight hours or overnight. 

In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the dish from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the French toast is puffy and slightly browned.
