HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Page Stroud of Sociably Yours stopped by FOX8 to share a New Year's Day brunch idea.

Baked French Toast Casserole

Ingredients

1 loaf French bread (13 to 16 ounces)

8 large eggs

2 cups half-and-half

1 cup milk

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

Slice French bread into 20 slices, 1-inch each.  Arrange slices in a generously buttered 9 by 13-inch flat baking dish in 2 rows, overlapping the slices.  In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and beat with a rotary beater or whisk until blended.  Pour mixture over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the milk-egg mixture.  Spoon some of the mixture in between the slices.  Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Bake for about 40 minutes
