Overnight French Toast

With a little prep the night before, you can have a super easy and quite tasty breakfast.  You may have to overlap the bread in the pan, just make sure all slices get the egg mixture.


10 slices of sourdough bread (a day or two old is great)
1/4 cup butter, softened
4 eggs
1 cup milk
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Spread butter evenly over the tops of all bread slices.

Place bread in a 13″ x 9″ glass baking pan.
Mix together eggs, milk, syrup, and vanilla.  Pour over bread, making sure all pieces are coated.  Cover and chill overnight.
Place bread slices on a silicone mat on two cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
