"This is a recipe that I developed while feeding a group for a Sunday brunch. It can be made the night before; it will pick up a more intense flavor."

  1. Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish. Lay the bread slices into the prepared baking dish in 2 layers. Beat eggs, half-and-half cream, orange juice, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl until smooth, and pour over the bread. With a large spoon, press the bread down into the egg mixture so all the bread becomes soaked with the mixture.
  2. Sprinkle the granola evenly over the casserole, and drizzle with maple syrup and melted butter. Cover the dish with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.
  3. About 1 hour before serving, remove the casserole from the refrigerator, and take off the plastic wrap. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, then turn oven temperature up to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake the casserole until browned, about 15 more minutes. Serve warm.

Excellent! Nutmeg definitely gives great flavor! These are the changes I incorporated: I used around 1/3 of a cup of both brown and white sugar instead of the 1/2 it called for. I also added...

I did not have granola so I substituted walnuts. I also did not have "light" brown sugar, so I used dark. I also did not have cream and used skim milk. I used fresh squeezed orange juice and the...

Very good make ahead french toast/bread pudding. The only thing that I had a problem with is the baking time/instructions. It was getting too brown before it was baked through so I covered it lo...

5 stars, with adjustments made. I used 3 cups of half and half, cut the sugar in half and waited until just before baking to pour the syrup and butter over it. I baked it at 350 for 45 minutes....

I did not care for this.

I made recipe exactly as described with the exception of 350 the entire time for an hour like suggested by another, and it didn't come out so well. However, it had an amazing flavor and I think ...

Great taste. I used a loaf of French bread & just tore it into chunks. I also cooked it at 350 covered with foil for 30 minutes and then took off the foil and cooked it for another 30-40 minutes...
