AMAZING Baked French Toast

1 cup of brown sugar
¾ cup butter or margarine
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
10-12 slices French bread
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 ½ cups half and half
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ cup butter or margarine melted
You can add chopped walnuts on the bottom of the pan.  It would also be good with like dried cranberries or fresh blueberries on the bottom of the pan.

Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan.  Cook over medium heat stirring constantly for 5 minutes or until mixture is bubbly.  Pour syrup mixture evenly into a lightly greased 13x9x2 in baking dish.  Arrange bread slices over syrup.  Combine eggs and next 3 ingredients; stir well.  Gradually pour mixture over bread slices.  Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon; stir well.  Sprinkle evenly over soaked bread.  Drizzle ¼ cup melted butter over bread.  Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 45 to 50 (mine took almost 1 ½ hours, otherwise the bread was kinda soggy) minutes or until golden and bubbly
