Creme Brulee French Toast – you assemble this dish the night before and bake in the morning.
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 Tablespoon corn syrup
- 2 baguettes or 1 loaf French Bread
- 5 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups half & half
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon Grand Marnier
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a small heavy saucepan, melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring until smooth and pour into a greased 9 X 13 inch baking dish.
Cut 10 to 12 slices (1 inch thick) slices, reserving ends for another use. Arrange bread slices in one layer in baking dish over the melted syrup. Squeeze them slightly to fit. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half & half, vanilla Grand Marnier and salt until well combined and ladle evenly over bread. Chill bread mixture, covered, overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bring bread to room temperature. Bake bread mixture, uncovered, in middle of oven until puffed and edges are pale golden, 35 to 40 minutes. The custard should be set. Serves 6.
