This is a company breakfast. I don't know why you wouldn't make this without company being over, but I know I wouldn't.
In a small bowl, combine 2/3 cup packed brown sugar,
1/2 cup melted butter and 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
(if you like cinnamon)
Cut a loaf of French bread into 1 inch slices.
In a large shallow bowl, whisk together 6 eggs and
1 1/2 cups milk.
Place bread slices in bowl - and you know how to make french toast, right? Turn them over once... take them out of the milk bath and sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on one side of the bread.
Place bread slices, brown sugar side down, in a lightly greased 9x13 pan.
Bake uncovered at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve brown sugar side up.
