1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 cup chopped pecans, (walnuts work well) divided
12 slices French or Italian-style bread or you can use texas toast
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
Caramel Sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup

In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter and 2 tablespoons corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
Pour sauce into a 9x13 inch baking dish and sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecans. Place 6 slices of bread on top of the sauce, sprinkle with the remaining pecans and cover with the remaining 6 slices of bread.
Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a blender (or use a whisk). Pour egg mixture evenly over bread slices, cover the baking dish, and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the French toast from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to baking. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until lightly brown. Drizzle sauce over the toast right before serving.
