Creme Brulee French Toast
The title is definitely a disguise. This is nothing like traditional French toast and will certainly fulfill one's daily calorie allotment (and then some). But it is worth it. I received this recipe from a sweet religion class teacher from church.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
Melt the above ingredients in a saucepan on low heat and pour on a sheet pan.
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups half and half
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon salt
pinch of nutmeg
good-quality bread (white bread is the best in this recipe!)
Whisk together the above ingredients and dip your bread into the egg mixture and set bread slices on top of the caramel in the sheet pan. Cover with plasticwrap and place in fridge for 1-2 hours.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350. Pull the sheet pan out of the oven and filp bread slices over. Cook for another 15 minutes.
If you really want to make this french toast even more unhealthy, add a dollop of freshly whipped cream and serve, but know that this is PLENTLY rich on its own. We served ours with strawberries as well.
