Christmas Caramel French Toast

I've made this a few time's it's really easy & perfect for Christmas morning! I'm making it this year along with Lacie's Sausage Breakfast Casserole (hint, hint Lacie)! I will add a picture when I make it on Christmas!

1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. butter/margarine
2 tbsp. corn syrup
12 slices bread (great with french bread or just cheap bread)
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon (divide into 1/2 tsp)
6 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1. In small saucepan, bring brown sugar, butter & corn syrup to a boil over med. heat stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Top with 6 slices on bread. Combine sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon & sprinkle over bread. Layer next 6 slices bread. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon & sugar mixture.
2. In large bowl beat eggs, milk, vanilla & 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
3. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.

I put pan in oven while it's heating up. So we can start opening presents. Then cook a little longer.
