Si Foster shares her recipe for Creme Brulee French Toast.
Creme Brulee French Toast
1-1.5 lb loaf Brioche sliced thick (about 8-one inch slices) day old is best
5 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1¼ cups half and half
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoon sugar
butter for cooking
1. Beat eggs, egg yolk, half and half, vanilla and sugar together in a 9×13 pan.
2. Place the bread in the pan and let the bread soak up the egg on one side for about 5 minutes, then turn and let soak on other side. If the bread does not fit all at once in the pan, let the bread soak, then remove to plate to allow other pieces to fit in pan. Let any excess egg mixture drip off into pan.
3. Heat frying pan or griddle up to 350 degrees. Melt a small amount of butter in pan. Place french toast pieces in pan and fry until golden on first side. While cooking the first side, sprinkle a small amount of sugar on the uncooked side. Flip and cook other side until golden and sugar is caramelized.
4. Serve with Maple Cream Syrup.
Maple Cream Syrup
1 cup heavy cream
½ cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon maple extract
½ teaspoon vanilla
Place cream, butter and brown sugar in a pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Cook for one minute. Remove from heat and add maple extract, dash of salt and vanilla.
