Weekend guests? Make this scrumptious make-ahead French toast with brown sugar sauce. It’s sweet and easy!
Slice bread into 10 to 12 (1-inch thick) slices. Arrange bread slices on bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking dish; set aside.
Combine all remaining French toast ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Pour mixture over bread, covering all bread surfaces. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine all sauce ingredients except almonds in saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until Butter with Olive Oil is melted. Continue cooking until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat.
Sprinkle bread with almonds. Pour sauce mixture over bread mixture in pan. Bake, uncovered, 35-45 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean and edges are golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes; sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve warm with maple syrup, if desired.

I made this for Easter breakfast and it was delicious! I followed the exact directions except that I used Pepperidge Farm Brown Sugar Swirl Bread instead of French bread. It looked as good as it tasted. I will definitely make this again.
This recipe is amazing! So easy to make and tastes soooo good. Everyone loved it!

Ryan’s mom, Becky, was even so kind as to come over and play with our toddler so that he could be outside, too – without getting too close to the clipping shears and other dangerous tools.
