Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 large ciabatta rolls (4″x4″), sliced in half, top and bottom crusts removed (or other nice white bread)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees; lightly butter an 11×9″ casserole dish

2) In small bowl, mix brown sugar, melted butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and pecans; spread across bottom of casserole dish; top with 6 ciabatta slices; set aside

3) In medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, sugar, and cinnamon; pour over ciabatta slices and let sit 10 minutes; bake in oven 45-50 minutes until eggs set; using spatula, flip each slice over onto plate to expose pecan praline topping; serve with or without extra maple syrup (it’s pretty sweet on its own)
