Crème Brulee French Toast

Filed under: Breakfast - French Toast, Romantic Recipes.

Great easy dish to make the night before. It is wonderful and everytime guests love it. It is a great main meal or as a side.

1/2 Cup butter (one stick)
1/2 Cup Brown sugar
2 Tblsp. Corn syrup
1 loaf Hawaiian Sweet Bread (orange package in bakery) I find at walmart and woodmans.
5 large eggs
1 1/2 cup half and half
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. Grand Marnier
1/4 tsp. salt

In a small saucepan, melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring until smooth and bubbly. Pour into 13X9 baking dish sprayed with Pam. (Do not use non-stick dark metal pan)

Cut 1 " thick slices from bread and trim off crusts. Arrange slices in one layer into baking dish, squeezing to fit if necessary.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half & half, vanilla, Grand Marnier and salt until combined. Pour carefully over bread. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Bring to room temperature; bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes @ 350'. (Check a few times so edges do not burn). After baking, invert baking dish over large plate or use a cookie sheet. Serve as is, no syrups needed. ENJOY!
