The perfect compliment to my ham and cheese strata, is this delicious french toast casserole.
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 loaf french bread
8 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp  ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp  ground ginger
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/8 t. salt
In a bowl, combine the brown sugar and melted butter. Pour in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Arrange slices of bread in the baking dish overlapping if necessary.

Combine milk, eggs, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and ginger in a bowl. Pour evenly over bread slices. Sprinkle the chopped walnuts over bread slices. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and take the casserole out of the fridge. Let the casserole sit to room temperature while oven preheats. Bake casserole for 30-35 minutes.
