  1. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter and 2 tablespoons corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  2. Pour sauce into a 9x13 inch baking dish and sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecans. Place 6 slices of bread on top of the sauce, sprinkle with the remaining pecans and cover with the remaining 6 slices of bread.
  3. Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a blender. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread slices, cover the baking dish, and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the French toast from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to baking. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until lightly brown. Drizzle sauce over the toast right before serving.
  5. To make the Caramel Sauce: In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter and 1 tablespoon corn syrup. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly.

Way too sweet. It didn't need the top layer of bread, and just one layer of caramel sauce would have been plenty. I used French bread and didn't have a problem with the layers being moistened, b...

This french toast is easy AND awesome!!! I used a bakery type cinnamon bread. Everybody loved this dish!!! Thanks!

There is no way that I would ever pour another layer of caramel sauce over the top - it was way too sweet to begin with! Overall, though, it was a pretty tasty dish, and my boyfriend even comme...

Very sweet, but good. We didn't use the carmel sauce, but next time we make we'll use the sauce and not the 1st 3 ingredients. We'll use alot less nutmeg also. A nice change from rolls.
