contributed by Lara Elizabeth Butler

Overnight French Toast

* 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature

* 12 3/4-inch-thick French bread slices

* 6 eggs

* 1 1/2 cups milk

* 1/4 cup sugar

* 2 tablespoons maple syrup

* 1 teaspoon vanilla

* 1/2 teaspoon salt

* confectioners’ sugar

Preparation:

Spread butter over bottom of large baking pan (jelly roll pan) with 1-inch-high sides. Arrange bread slices in the pan. Combine eggs, milk, sugar, syrup, vanilla and salt in large bowl; whisk until well blended. Pour egg mixture over bread. Turn bread slices to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 400°. Bake French bread 10 minutes. Turn bread over and continue baking just until golden brown, about 5 to 6 minutes longer. Transfer cooked French toast to plates and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. Serve hot, with maple syrup or your favorite topping.
