Crème Brulee French Toast

Crème Brulee French Toast from lauranne
Source: AllRecipes.com

Ingredients
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
6 French bread (HoosierTerp’s Dad makes this recipe with challah and she says it’s amazing!)
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®)
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions
1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Mix in brown sugar and corn syrup, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
2. Remove crusts from bread, and arrange in the baking dish in a single layer. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, vanilla extract, orange brandy, and salt. Pour over the bread. Cover, and chill at least 8 hours, or overnight.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the dish from the refrigerator, and bring to room temperature.
4. Bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until puffed and lightly browned.

Notes: I omit the Grand Marnier, and usually take it right out of the fridge and put it in the oven
