Creme Brulee French Toast

Last week, my friend, Tiana, introduced me to this perfectly delicious french toast.  I am forever changed.  I have been thinking about this amazing breakfast dish since I left her house.  I texted my sisters about it and have been raving about it to my husband over and over.  Yes, folks, it is that good.  Just make it already.  Alright?  Alright.

Creme Brulee French Toast

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs. corn syrup
1 loaf French bread
5 large eggs
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt

In a small saucepan, melt butter, brown sugar and corn syrup over medium heat.  Stir until smooth.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.  Cut bread into thick slices and trim crusts.  Arrange slices in pan, squeezing them to fit.  In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, vanilla and salt.  Pour evenly over the bread.  Cover with foil and chill in refrigerator overnight or at least 8 hours.  Let french toast come to room temperature before baking.  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, until puffed and edges are golden.  Serve with fresh whipped cream and berries.
