2/3 cup maple syrup

2 cups chopped pecans
  1. generously butter a 13-by- 9 in casserole dish
  2. mix together the eggs, half-n-half, maple syrup, and sugar in a large bowl. place the bread slices in the prepared casserole dish and cover with the egg mixture. cover and let soak overnight in the refrigerator
  3. preheat the oven to 350. remove the casserole from the refrigerator
  4. make the topping: melt the butter in a saucepan. add the sugar and maple syrup and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. stir in the pecans. pour the mixture over the bread and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving
