"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Directions:
Slice the French bread into 1" slices. Arrange the slices in a generously buttered 9 x 13" baking dish in two rows, overlapping the slices. Combine the eggs, half and half, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and beat with a rotary beater or whisk until blended but not too bubbly. Pour over the bread slices, making sure all are covered evenly with the mixture, spooning some of the mixture in between the slices. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

The next morning, combine the praline topping ingredients in a medium bowl and spread evenly over the bread. Bake for 40 minutes at 350, until puffed and golden. Serve with Maple Syrup or honey. This is the most delicious breakfast for special occasions!
