Who doesn’t love French Toast?! It’s one of those recipes I remember enjoying as a child and one that I still love today. Over the years, we’ve adapted and made several varieties, like Stuffed french toast or overnight casserole versions, and today is just another recipe we now love. It’s called Creme Brulee French Toast. I was first introduced to the recipe when I was asked to make it for a bridal shower. So glad I made it because it’s become a new favorite.
This Creme Brulee french toast recipe is amazing because it has a caramel, crusted side that makes it SO delicious!! It calls for being refrigerated over night but the last few times I’ve made it, we put in the fridge for a few hours and it still turned out great. This toast still has the egg-y taste you have with regular french toast but substitute the cinnamon for caramel. As with most french toast recipes, it’s simple to make and is great for breakfast OR dinner!
Add some homemade Buttermilk Syrup (recipe found HERE), and you have a very decadent but amazing breakfast recipe that is sure to knock off everyone’s socks!
