Creme Brulee French ToastFrom SOUTHERN COMFORT BED AND BREAKFAST
Cooking Time:35 to 40 minutes
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbs corn syrup
- 1 loaf French bread, cut in half inch slices
- 5 large eggs
- 1 ½ c half and half
- 1 tsp vanilla

The recipe calls for a round loaf of country style bread, but our french bread works well.
Melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup. Stir till smooth. Pour into 13-by 9-by 2 inch baking dish. Arrange bread slices on top.
Whisk all other ingredients and pour over bread mixture. Chill at least 8 hours.
Bake uncovered until puffed and edges are golden brown. 35 to 40 minutes. Cut into 6 servings. I flip the pieces over so that the caramel side is up.
