A certain Only posted the video to my FB timeline and suggested I should try this recipe. I did. We all enjoyed it over Christmas. 😆 Please note that the picture is of a double batch. The recipe, as given, is better in a 9X9 baking pan.
2 cups of milk
1 1/2 cups half and half
16 oz. of crusty bread “cubed” (I used crusty rolls that I bought frozen, baked, and chunked up)
Mix wet ingredients and pour over bread
In saucepan, melt and mix
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
Stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth.
Stir in 1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups pecan halves
Pour over bread mixture and stir.
Cover with foil and bake in preheated 350° oven. Remove cover after 30 minutes and continue cooking for 15-25 minutes until custard is set and top bread is a little crusty. (45-55 minutes total baking time)
Serve warm. You can watch the video to see how it’s done, but I had to watch it more than a few times to get the ingredients down right. 🙂 Enjoy! And let me know if you make it.
