Overnight French Toast with Praline Syrup Recipe

I discovered this dish last year while hosting a family reunion here in the Pocono Mountains. My niece brought it and shared the recipe. It's a great dish to make ahead of time and freeze; then you'll have a fancy but easy-to-prepare breakfast whenever you host overnight guests.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2012

"Love this recipe and it is now the only way French Toast is made in my home! For our little one after the french toast is cooked I cut it into finger lengths and it is firm enough that he can hold it and eat it. LOVE this recipe!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 9, 2010

"This is simply wonderful. Served this to Holiday guests for brunch and had glowing reviews. I will never by syrup in the store ever again. The next time I made this I cut the recipe in half just for us and it worked out fine. The syrup I make every week."
