Combine the eggs, half and half, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Pour half the mixture into a baking dish. Place the bread in the pan and top with the other half of egg mixture. Refrigerate, covered, overnight. Melt the butter in a 9x13 inch baking dish and stir in the brown sugar, honey, maple syrup and pecans. Add the soaked bread slices. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 until puffed and brown. Serve immediately.

For extra special, make honey butter. Combine 1 stick of butter, 2/3 cup honey and 1/3 light brown sugar with food processor. Keeps up to 4 weeks.

Personal Notes:
I make this for special out of town guests, since the french bread soaks overnight. I usually half the butter and sub walnuts (healthier). I serve with strawberries and/or bananas and sprinkle confectioners' sugar on top.
