Instructions

 

Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 2-quart oblong baking dish with cooking spray. Toast bread very lightly in toaster; set aside. In 2-quart saucepan, mix 3/4 cup brown sugar, the butter, half-and-half and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, just until smooth (do not boil). Spread mixture in baking dish.

In a medium mixing bowl,  beat eggs with fork. Beat in milk, vanilla and salt. Slowly dip toasted bread, one slice at a time, into egg mixture, allowing bread to soak up egg mixture; arrange bread over topping in dish, overlapping if necessary to fit. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour but no longer than 8 hours.

Uncover baking dish; sprinkle bread slices with 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and toast is golden brown. Let stand 3 minutes. To serve, place French toast, caramel side up, on individual serving plates. Top each with yogurt, strawberries and pecans.
