Eggnog French Toast Casserole

I really liked Laurie's overnight french toast and I like to play with recipes and am always looking for shortcuts :) so here is my version...


1 loaf  French bread-cut into 20 slices about an inch thick
5 cups eggnog

 Spray a 9x13 casserole dish with spray oil and lay 1/2 of the bread slices in a casserole dish and pour 1/2 of the eggnog over them and place the other half of the bread slices on top and pour remaining eggnog.
Cover and refridgerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

The next morning spread topping (below) over bread in casserole and bake for 40-45 minutes until puffy and golden brown. Cool for about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with powdered sugar to sprinkle.

2 sticks butter-melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup chopped walnuts

Mix all together
