Creme Brulee French Toast

This is divine!  It tastes similar to Sticky Buns.  My husband suggested that whipped cream on top would make it even more wonderful.  This should only be made for special occasions.  It's that good.  The syrup is wonderful and will be great on anything syrup is good on.

French Toast

1/2 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar, packed
2 T. corn syrup
1 loaf Texas toast bread, extra thick
5 eggs
1 1/2 c. half & half
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla

In a small saucepan, melt butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup over medium heat until smooth, stirring occasionally.  Pour mixture into a large greased 13x18-inch jelly-roll pan (aka: cookie sheet).  Mix together eggs, cream, salt, and vanilla.  Spoon mixture over each piece of bread.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.  Bake uncovered at 350* for 30 minutes.  Remove from pan and serve with buttermilk syrup.  If not serving immediately, turn each slice of bread over.  (I turned it over to serve anyway).

Buttermilk syrup

1 1/2 c. sugar
2 T. corn syrup
1/2 c. butter
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. buttermilk
2 tsp. vanilla

In a saucepan, combine sugar, butter, baking soda, buttermilk and corn syrup.  Bring to a boil.  Boil 7 minutes, stirring occasionally (this helps prevent it from spilling over too).  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

mmmm.  Enjoy!!
