Weekend mornings provide time for breakfasts that take a little more time. I prepared this last night for breakfast today, but it can be made immediately after preparation as well. I hope you enjoy.

- Spray a 13 x 9-inch (3.5 L) baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange bread slices to fit in single layer in dish; sprinkle with cinnamon.
- In a bowl, beat eggs with milk, syrup, margarine or butter and vanilla just until blended. Pour evenly over single layer of bread. Bake immediately or cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
