CREME BRULEE FRENCH TOAST
Yield: 6 Servings
½ cup Unsalted Butter
1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Corn Syrup
6 French Bread
1 ½ cups Half-And-Half Cream
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Brandy-Based Orange Liqueur (Such As Grand Marnier®)
¼ tsp Salt
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Mix in brown sugar and corn syrup, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Remove crusts from bread, and arrange in the baking dish in a single layer. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, vanilla extract, orange brandy, and salt. Pour over the bread. Cover, and chill at least 8 hours, or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the dish from the refrigerator, and bring to room temperature.
Bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until puffed and lightly browned.
