Baked French Toast

Baked French Toast



  • 16 ounce loaf French bread
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Homemade Gourmet® Spiced Dip Mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 Homemade Gourmet® Old Fashioned Apple Crisp Mix with pecans
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • Maple syrup or honey to serve over French toast


  1. Slice bread into 1-inch slices. Arrange the slices in a generously buttered 13x9x2 baking dish in 2 rows, overlapping the slices.
  2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, half & half, milk, vanilla, spiced dip mix and salt; beat with mixer or whisk until blended, but not too bubbly. Pour over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the mixture, spooning some of the mixture in between the slices. Cover with foil; refrigerate overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine praline topping ingredients (butter, apple crisp mix, brown sugar, pecans and nutmeg) in a medium bowl and spread evenly over bread.
  4. Bake for 55 – 60 minutes, or longer; until puffed and golden. Serve with maple syrup or honey.
