Easy Overnight French Toast
3 Small Loafs French Bread, Cut Into 1/2 Inch Slices
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
2 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
Lightly coat a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Arrange the bread in the dish so the pieces are upright. Set aside. In a small bowl, mix together milk, eggs, cinnamon, and nutmeg and evenly pour over the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or at least 2 hours). Bake uncovered at 350 for 30-35 minutes. While the french toast is baking, melt butter in a small sauce pan. Add the brown sugar and maple syrup and cook until well combined and slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Pour evenly over the french toast when it is done baking and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately to your eagerly waiting house guests.
I wish I had gotten a picture of the whole dish, but I was too impatient and was already on my second helping when I realized I had not yet taken the photo!
