Like cheeseburger pizza, this recipe is a testament to the truth that combining two delicious things almost always ends in a more delicious thing. Also, the truth that a touch of maple syrup makes everything better.
- Place bread cubes in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. In a
large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt if
desired. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or
- Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Dot with
butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top.
- Cover and bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a knife
inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Serve with maple syrup if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
