Creme Brulee French Toast

image found here

Ok, this is by far my very favorite breakfast recipe eva! We had some friends come over for a pre-Independence Day parade breakfast and as always, I wanted to entertain with as little work as possible. This is so easy because you just make it the night before and then cook it in the morning. And they turned out divine! You will NEVER go back to regular french toast again. I promise.
Here's the recipe:
Creme Brulee French Toast
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 T corn syrup
loaf of texas toast bread
5 large eggs
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 t vanilla
1/4 t salt
In a saucepan, melt together the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup. Pour into a jelly roll pan, or a cookie sheet with taller sides. Arrange 12 pieces of texas toast on top of the sugar mixture. Whisk together eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, and salt. Use a smaller measuring cup to pour egg mixture on the bread. You want the bread to be pretty soaked. Cover with plastic and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, bake uncovered for 27-ish minutes at 350 degrees. You do NOT want the tops of the bread golden, that means you've cooked it too long. Just watch it closely. You won't even really need syrup, but if you want a real sugar-rush, go for it! Enjoy!


  1. Sounds delicious! I wonder if you could use a creme brulee mix, like, as well.

  2. I think we need to make this at the cabin, it looks delicious AND it uses Texas toast!!
