Ingredients

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

2 tablespoons honey

1 cup chopped pecans, toasted

1 (1-pound) loaf French bread, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

2 cups (8 ounces) finely chopped ham

6 large Land O Lakes® Eggs, beaten

1 2/3 cups milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice  

 

Maple syrup, if desired

 

 *Substitute 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine brown sugar, butter and honey in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, 2-3 minutes or until sugar melts. Pour into ungreased 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with pecans. Top with half of bread slices; sprinkle with ham.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine eggs, milk and vanilla in bowl; beat until well mixed. Dip remaining bread slices in egg mixture on one side only. Place over ham, dipped-side down. Pour remaining egg mixture over bread slices.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice in bowl; sprinkle over top. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake, uncovered, 50-55 minutes or until golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes. Cut into 8 servings; invert each onto serving plates. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.

Tip #1

For speedy preparation, ask if the bakery at the supermarket can cut French bread on their bread slicer so slices are uniform thickness.
