French toast is a great dish for brunch. This recipe will not have the burnt sugar traditionally found on a Brülée. It will, however, taste just like a that wonderful dessert.
1 stick Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed
2 tablespoons Corn Syrup
1 loaf French Bread
6 large Eggs
1 1/2 cups Half and Half
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 teaspoon Salt
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter with the sugar and corn syrup. Stir until smooth, about 4 minutes, and pour into a 9×13-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Cut 6 1-inch slices and arrange bread in baking dish.
In a bowl, whisk eggs, half and half, vanilla, and salt until combined, and pour mixture evenly over bread. Refrigerate, covered overnight.
Preheat oven to 350℉.
Bring bread to room temperature. Bake uncovered until puffed and edges are pale golden, approximately 35-40 minutes. Serve immediately.
