A little morning treat...

After attending a fabulous (pre-SantaCon) breakfast at the Ferraro's, I couldn't help but steal the recipe for this delectable dish!  While I'm certainly no baker, this Creme Brulee French Toast turned out to be super simple and even more decadent than I remembered it being that jolly morning...then again mimosas were involved.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Crème Brulee French Toast
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup of light brown packed sugar
2 tbsp light corn syrup
1 loaf of Challah Bread
5 large eggs
1 1/2 cups of half & half
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp Grand Manier (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
- Mix butter, syrup and brown sugar in a pot until smooth on low heat
- Pour into 13x9x2 baking dish
- Cut the bread down the center longwise, cut off cust and then slice and put into baking dish
- In mixing bowl add eggs, half/half, vanilla and Grand Manier and salt
- Pour the mixture over the bread evenly and coat with cinnamon
- Cover and put in fridge overnight
- Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 35-40 minutes until browned and it will puff up while baking
I had leftovers from this dish as it was just me and one other person attempting to eat the whole thing.  But I continued to snack on it as a dessert the remainder of the week (microwave for 1 minute and add toppings - syrup, ice cream, chocolate syrup, fresh fruit...)
