I love easy do ahead dishes especially for holidays or when we have company.
This is perfect for an easy impressive breakfast:)
Creme Brulee French Toast
3/4 cup Butter (unsalted)
1 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
1 loaf French Bread
2 cups Half and Half
1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
3 Tablespoons of Grand Marnier
1/4 teaspoon salt
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Mix in brown sugar and maple syrup stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and pour into a 9 X 13 baking dish.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and mix in the half and half. Add the vanilla and brandy and salt. Carefully pour over the bread slices.
Cover and place in fridge overnight (at least 8 hours). The bread will soak up the egg mixture.
Remove from fridge and bring to room temperature. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes until puffed and lightly browned.
Serve with a little powdered sugar sprinkled on top.
and/or a little maple syrup drizzled on top.
