Crème Brûlée French Toast

This recipe comes from my best friend Paula! Words cannot describe how delicious this tastes!

Paula's makes this ever year for Mother's Day brunch and Christmas Day brunch. It can be served for breakfast but tastes much more like a sinfully scrumptious dessert.

Crème Brûlée French Toast recipe

1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoon corn syrup
1 loaf texas toast
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
(i added chopped pecans)
syrup butter:
1 1/2 cups butter
3 cups maple syrup
melt together and serve over toast.

in a small saucepan melt butter, brown sugar and corn syrup (and chopped pecans, if you're adding that) over medium heat until smooth, stirring occasionally. pour mixture onto large greased cookie sheet (i cover the cookie sheet with tin foil). spread mixture to cover surface. place 12 slices of texas toast in a single layer to cover pan.
mix together eggs, cream, salt and vanilla. spoon mixture over each piece of bread. cover and refrigerate overnight. bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. remove from pan and serve. if not serving immediately, turn each slice of bread over (this will prevent bread from sticking to the bottom of the pan).

Makes 12 servings
bon appétit
