Cinnamon -- optional
Sugar optional

2. Melt butter in a small pot over low heat. (Alternatively, melt in a
microwave safe bowl in the microwave in 15 second increments, stirring
in between, until melted.)
3. Add 1 cup brown sugar, mixing well to combine. (If on the stove, let
simmer for 1 minute to slightly dissolve the sugar.)

8. Arrange remaining bread slices over the top. Pour over remaining egg
wash and top with remaining brown sugar/cinnamon. Lightly press
bread into the egg wash to ensure slices are evenly soaked.

the custard mixture, or overnight for the best results
10. When ready to bake, take the dish out of the refrigerator 20 minutes
before baking (if it has been in overnight) to get the chill out.
