    Default Baked Butter Pecan French Toast

    1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    2 tablespoons honey
    1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
    1 (1-pound) loaf French bread, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
    2 cups (8 ounces) finely chopped ham
    6 large eggs, beaten
    1 2/3 cups milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice*
    Maple syrup, if desired

    Combine brown sugar, butter and honey in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar melts (2 to 3 minutes). Pour into ungreased 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with pecans. Top with half of bread slices; sprinkle with ham.

    Combine eggs, milk and vanilla in large bowl; beat until well mixed. Dip remaining bread slices in egg mixture on one side only. Place over ham, dipped-side down. Pour remaining egg mixture over bread slices.

    Combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice in small bowl; sprinkle over top. Cover; refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

    Heat oven to 350F. Bake, uncovered, for 50 to 55 minutes or until golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes. Cut into 8 servings; invert each onto serving plates. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.

    Makes 8 servings.

    *Substitute 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves.

    Tip: For speedy preparation, ask the baker at your supermarket to cut the French bread on their bread slicer so the slices are uniform thickness
