Overnight Caramel French Toast

I decided to make this Overnight Caramel French Toast for my 6th year wedding anniversary.  I love making overnight french toasts, they're always so good, and so easy the morning of.  It turned out great!  I loved the gooey caramel and having to pick it out of my teeth.  Soo good! 

This was so good!  I loved the caramel!

Make the caramel and pour at the bottom of the pan.

Arrange 6 slices of french bread on top of the caramel.

Pour the milk/egg mixture over the bread.

Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over bread.  Cover and refrigerate overnight. 

Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.  This is what the bottom of the french toast looks like. 

The top, w/ all the cinnamon/sugar.  YUM!

It wasn't all soggy the day after?

No way! It was perfectly crispy on top and on edges. But, I guess it was soggy somewhat on the bottom, but I'm pretty sure that's how it's supposed to be. It was just "soggy" like an egg casserole w/ caramel all over it. So good!
