Lightly grease a 13x9-inch baking dish. Arrange bread slices in the dish, overlapping as necessary.
Add eggs, milk, half and half, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon to yourWhiskware™ Egg Mixer and whisk together. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread; give dish a few shakes to distribute eggs into nooks and crannies. Press bread down with the back of a large spoon.
In a small bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup. Stir in nuts. Spoon nut mixture topping over the bread, then cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, bake at 325F, uncovered, for 1 hour or until puffed and golden. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Top with pure maple syrup if desired.
