Maple Creme Brulee French Toast

Ingredients:

8 Tbsp (1 stick) butter
1 1/3 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
1 cup half and half
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 loaf Challah bread sliced 1″ thick

Instructions:

1 – Preheat your oven to 250º F.

2 – Melt 8 Tbsp (1 stick) butter in a medium sauce pan. Stir in 1 1/3 cup brown sugar and cook until smooth, shiny and pale in color (like caramel).

3 – Pour caramel mixture into a well greased 9”x13” baking pan, spreading the mixture evenly to make a thin layer on the bottom of the pan.

4 – In a separate bowl, mix 4 eggs, 1 cup half and half, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup maple syrup together to make a batter. Dip bread slices in the batter.

5 – Lay the soaked slices in the pan on top if the caramel, laying the slices right next to each other so they are packed tightly in the pan. Pour any remaining batter over the bread slices and place pan in oven.

6 – Bake for 30 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and while pan is still hot, carefully invert the pan onto a large serving platter. Serve immediately.
