Description:This satisfyingly gooey creation is the perfect centerpiece for weekend brunch with girlfriends or a weeknight dinner with family. Thick slices of bread are soaked in a cinnamon-sugar custard and dotted with chopped pecans. The French toast casserole is then baked until the bread puffs and the praline top crisps. Oven - 50 minutes if thawed, 65-70 minutes if frozen.
Preparation: Thaw completely. If frozen or partially frozen, bake covered 15-20 minutes. Then remove lid and spread praline topping evenly over bread before proceeding with uncovered baking time.
Cooking Instructions: Preheat oven to 350F. Remove lid and place pan on baking sheet. Spread praline topping evenly over bread. Bake uncovered 50 minutes (check regular entree after 40 minutes) until puffy and golden. Cooking times may vary due to differences in ovens.
Suggested Sides: Fresh fruit, breakfast sausage
