Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast

Yield: 12 slices
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. corn syrup
  • 1 loaf French bread, sliced into 12 slices
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c. half and half
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • dash of cinnamon
  1. Grease a large jelly roll pan (18x13"). In small saucepan melt butter, brown sugar and corn syrup over medium heat until smooth, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture onto prepared pan, spreading around to cover surface. Place bread slices in single layer on mixture. Mix together eggs, cream, salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Spoon mixture over each piece of bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Next morning, heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake uncovered 25-30 minutes. Remove from pan and serve immediately.
This won't necessarily look pretty, but taste and ease of recipe more than make up for that!
