Make Ahead Caramel French Toast

On one of our visits to see my good friend, Christy Smith, she made us this wonderful breakfast of Caramel French Toast, pigs-in-a-blanket, and fresh fruit.  She was living in Jackson, MS at the time while her husband was attending medical school.  This is now a family favorite and the perfect breakfast for special occasions.

Make Ahead Caramel French Toast

1 c. brown sugar
6 TB butter
1/3 c. whipping cream
1 TB light corn syrup

French toast:
3 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
8 (3/4 " thick) diagonal slices of french bread

Spray 9 x 13" glass baking dish with Pam.  In med. saucepan, combine all topping ingredients.  Mix well. Cook over medium heat till smooth, stirring constantly.  DO NOT BOIL.  Spread topping in baking dish.  

Beat eggs in shallow bowl.  Add milk, vanilla, and salt.  Beat well.  Dip each bread slice in egg mixture, making sure all egg is absorbed.  Place bread slices over topping in pan.  Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.  

To serve, bake uncovered 20-25 minutes @ 350 or until bubbly and golden brown.  Let stand 3 minutes.  Invert on platter, if desired.
