Ingredients:

 1 loaf French bread, torn into chunks or cubed
 6 large eggs
 2 ½ cups milk
 1 cup pumpkin puree
 ¾ cup sugar
 2 tbsp vanilla
 1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
Streusel
 1 ¼ cups flour
 ¾ cup brown sugar
 1 tsp ground cinnamon
 ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
 ¼ tsp salt
 8 tbsp butter
 1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped

Directions:

1

Tear or cube the French bread and place in a greased 9x13 casserole dish. Combine eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice to form a custard; whisk until smooth. Pour pumpkin mixture over the bread, making sure to gently press down on the bread to soak as much as you can.

2

For the brown sugar crumble, mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add butter and work it into a flour mix with your fingers or fork until crumbly with pea-sized bits of butter; mix in the nuts.

3

Cover both and refrigerate overnight.

4

To bake, sprinkle the crumble over the top of the casserole and bake at 350 degree for 45 minutes or until set; a knife inserted in the center should come out clean. Let it rest 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm.
