Fall Breakfast Recipe

I came across this yummy recipe from Grocery Cart Challenge. This gal knows a good thing and I always like the recipes she chooses. I discovered Recipe Zaar from her blog and I can't tell you how much I LOVE this site. I have gotten so many great recipes from there, including this one. I love the recipes on this site as much as I love the recipes from Church cookbooks.

Over Night Carmel Strata
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
12 slices white bread, crusts trimmed
1 1/2 cups whole milk
6 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine sugar, butter and corn syrup in heavy small saucepan.
Stir mixture over medium-low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil. Pour into a a 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish. Tilt dish to coat bottom evenly-cool. Arrange 6 bread slices in single layer top caramel, trimming bread to fit. Cover with remaining bread slices, trimming to fit. Whisk milk, eggs,vanilla and salt in bowl to blend.

Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 350. Bake strata uncovered until bread is puffed and lightly golden, about 40 minutes.

Let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 6 portions. Using a spatula, invert each portion onto plate so that caramel side faces up. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
