The next step is as simple as 123, whisk together eggs, half and half and sugar till the sugar is somewhat dissolved. Gently pour this over the bread. Now ideally one should let this soak for a couple of hours, overnight if you are a planned and patient person which I have to admit I am not. So soak it for as long as you can, I soaked it for about 15 minutes that day and in previous cases, I have soaked it overnight. The difference actually is in how close to pudding-like it gets. At various times, I like various stages.
