Creme Brulee French Toast

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 cup (more if desired) chopped pecans
1 loaf French baguette bread, cut into 1-inch slices
5 large eggs
1-1/2 cups half-and-half
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon Grand Marnier or 1 teaspoon orange juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Non-stick cooking spray

Instructions

In a small heavy saucepan, melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring until smooth and melted completely together. Pour mixture into a 9x13x2-inch baking dish coated with non-stick spray. Sprinkle pecans over melted mixture. Place cut slices of French baguette bread on top of melted mixture-press down lightly with hands to ensure bread soaks up melted mixture. Set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, vanilla, Grand Marnier or orange juice and salt until well combined. Pour mixture evenly over top of bread and melted mixture. Chill bread mixture, covered, overnight (at least 8 hours and up to 1 day)

Preheat over to 350 degrees and bring bread mixture to room temperature.

Bake bread mixture, uncovered, in middle of oven until puffed and edges are pale golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Keep an eye on it so you don't burn it.

Serve immediately.

Serves 4 to 8-depending on size of serving.
