This is a delicious favorite of the family that we always make on Christmas morning. We always make it up the night before so it is ready to put in the oven on Christmas morning.

Ingredients

1 loaf (8-ounces) French bread cut into 1-in. thick slices
8 large eggs
3 cups milk
4 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3/4 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
Maple syrup or honey

Directions

Method: Completely cover bottom of generously buttered 13x9 baking pan with bread slices. Set aside. Stir together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt in large bowl. Pour over bread; cover tightly with aluminum foil. Refrigerate overnight.

Heat oven to 350. Remove pan from refrigerator. Uncover; dot with butter. Bake, uncovered, until puffed and golden, 40 to 50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with syrup or honey. Yield: 6 servings.
