Pinterest Father's Day - Creme Brulee French Toast

This week I thought I'd share with you our Father's Day menu.  A lot of it was Pinterest inspired!  Don't you love it when you actually follow through and make something you saw on there!  I like to keep the recipes I find from different blogs on my recipe boards.  It's so easy to go back and find them again when you are ready to make something.  I made quite a few recipes on Father's Day that I either found or saved to Pinterest.  They were all so good I had to pass them on!

We'll start with breakfast.  We had Creme Brulee French Toast!!  So yummy!  French Toast has always been my favorite breakfast and Creme Brulee is one of my favorite desserts. To combine the two is just heavenly!!  I know, I know it's Father's Day, not Mother's Day but the hubby is a big fan of them both too.  When I saw this recipe, I knew it would be the perfect Father's Day breakfast.  You make it the night before, which is great so you can just throw it in the oven in the morning. 

Creme Brulee French Toast
by Six Sisters' Stuff

1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp corn syrup
1 loaf thick sliced bread (I just bought French bread and cut into thick slices)
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dash of cinnamon

In a small saucepan melt butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup over medium heat until smooth, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture onto large, greased jelly roll pan (18x13x1"). Spread around to cover surface. Place 12 slices of bread in a single layer to cover pan. Mix together eggs, cream, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Spoon mixture over each piece of bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. Remove from pan and serve. If not serving immediately, turn each slice of bread over (this will prevent bread from sticking to the bottom of the pan). 

This french toast is so decadent and delicious that you don't even need syrup!  We did add some fruit and a dollop of whipped cream for fun.  This is the perfect special occasion breakfast!
