Absolutely delicious just the way it is, but for a variation, place a layer of Granny Smith apple slices between the sandwiched bread. – Graycote Inn, Bar Harbor, Maine

Ingredients

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 cup finely chopped pecans
12 to 18 slices Italian or French bread
6 eggs
1-1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
Graycote Inn Caramel Sauce (recipe follows)

Instructions

Combine the brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Pour into a 13x9-inch baking dish and sprinkle half the pecans over the syrup. Place 6 to 9 slices of bread on top of the syrup mixture and sprinkle the remaining pecans on top of the bread. Top with the remaining 6 to 9 slices of bread.

Combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt in a blender. Pour evenly over the bread slices, cover the baking dish, and chill for 8 hours.

Bake uncovered in a preheated 350 degree oven until lightly browned, for 40 to 45 minutes. Drizzle sauce over toast before serving.
