Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

While the French toast is baking, begin making the Praline syrup. Empty the jar of Praline Topping into a saucepan. Add water and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for about 3 minutes. Before serving, spoon desired amount of syrup mixture over each slice.
