Crème Brulee French Toast

Procedure:

  1. In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Immediately pour mixture into an 8″x10″ baking dish. Arrange sliced bread in the dish. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine milk, cream eggs, vanilla extract, zest and salt. Mix well and pour over bread. Let stand in chiller for bread to absorb milk mixture.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake bread for 30 to 40 minutes or until breads become puffed and milk mixture has set. Cool slightly before serving.

Makes 3-4 servings.

Tip: May be served with fruit marmalade and/or whipped cream on the side.
