  3. Mix 1/4 cup brown sugar with 1/4 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle onto the butter in the baking dish


  4. In a medium bowl whisk eggs until smooth, then mix in half & half, milk, 1/2 cup brown sugar, vanilla and pinch of salt


  5. Arrange bread slides in baking dish in an overlapping pattern. Pour egg mixture over the top moving the slices around to help get each side evenly coating


  6. In a small bowl mix karo syrup, remaining melted butter (about 1/2 stick), 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon.  Randomly drizzle over the bread pieces. 


  7. Let sit for 30 minutes up to over night in the refrigerator.

    Bake for 35 mins or until golden brown


  8. While the bread is baking, in a small bowl mix all of the glaze ingredients until smooth.  Drizzle the glaze on top of each serving and enjoy this new family favorite!
