Creme Brulee French Toast Recipe

1/2 C. unsalted butter
1 C. packed brown sugar
2 T. corn syrup
1 loaf Challah
5 large eggs
1 1/2 C. half-and-half
1 t. vanilla
1 t. Grand Marnier
1/4 t. salt
Berries for garnish

In a small heavy saucepan, melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring until smooth. Pour into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Cut 1-inch-thick slices from center of bread, reserving ends for another use, and trim crusts. Arrange bread slices in one layer in baking dish, squeezing them slightly to fit.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, Grand Marnier and salt until combined well and pour evenly over bread. Chill bread mixture, covered, at least 8 hours and up to 1 day. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bring bread to room temperature. Bake bread mixture, uncovered, in middle of oven until puffed and edges are pale golden, 35 - 40 minutes.

To serve, invert on a large platter, dust with powdered sugar and garnish with strawberries or blueberries.

Serves 6.
