A wonderful baked French toast prepared the night before and baked the next morning. This makes an excellent holiday breakfast! Serve with maple syrup or as is.

I loved this. It was so tasty and great becuase you can make it ahead of time and the next day it takes no time at all to prep. Perfect for christmas day.

Made it this morning. Wonderful! Will make it again. Not overly sweet and we love the pecans.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy! Very easy to make and great to take to a brunch. You may have to downsize to a smaller pan; when I laid the bread down, it didn't make enough for a 9" x 13" baker.
