Ingredients:

Pecan Butter Topping

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Generously butter a 9x13-inch high-sided ovenproof baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt, currants and their soaking liquid, and spices. With a whisk, whip until blended and slightly aerated.
  3. Place large cubes of the Brioche bread into the mixture and quickly, but gently, toss making sure all are cubes are covered evenly with the milk-egg mixture. Spoon the bread into the prepared baking dish and drizzle any remaining egg mixture on the bread making sure the bread is doused well. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  4. To make the pecan butter topping, combine all the ingredients well.
  5. The next morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Top the casserole with the butter pecan topping. Cover with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until eggs are puffed and warmed through. Remove the foil during the last 10 minutes of bake time. Serve with the warmed maple syrup and fresh, sliced pears.

What?! This sounds crazy good! Any chance it’ll still taste delish if I use gluten-free bread, Chef Gigi Gaggero ? Yum!
