Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

For the bread, stale bread on a baking sheet, 10 minutes per side. Transfer bread to a cooling rack and shut off oven.

For the caramel, combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt in a saucepan and heat over medium until butter melts. Increase heat to medium-high, bring to a boil, and cook caramel until sugar dissolves, 2 minutes. Stir in pecans; pour into prepared dish.

For the custard, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, and cinnamon. Dip both sides of bread in custard and arrange on top of caramel.

Pour remaining custard over bread, cover dish with plastic wrap, and chill at least 2 hours or up to overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°. Remove casserole from refrigerator and let sit at room temperature, about 30 minutes; remove plastic wrap.

Bake casserole until custard is set, and a thermometer inserted into the center registers 160°, 40–45 minutes. Let casserole rest 5 minutes, then invert, caramel side up, onto a serving platter. Garnish servings with whipped cream and bacon.

To ensure the bread slices absorb the custard and bake evenly, cut uniform slices, 1½-inches thick.
