9 eggs
2 1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 tbsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 lb. day-old French bread, ends trimmed, cut into 16 1 in. thick slices
10 tbsp. butter
3 medium tart apples, peeled, cored, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 c. coarsely chopped pecans
2/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. hot water

Whisk eggs to blend in medium bowl. Whisk in milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Arrange bread in single layer in shallow dish. Pour egg mixture over bread. Let stand until egg mixture is absorbed, turning occasionally, about 20 min.
