creme brulee french toast

i make this every christmas for breakfast, and we love it. the kids love it because it is so yummy, and i love it because you make it the night before so it's easy to just pop in the oven while we are opening presents. try it, you will love it!

Creme Brulee French Toast

1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbs corn syrup
1 loaf Texas toast bread (extra thick slices)
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups half and half cream
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

in 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 inch). spread to cover surface. place 12 slices texas toast bread in a single layer to cover pan. mix together eggs, cream, salt, and vanilla. spoon mixture over each piece if bread. cover and refrigerate overnight. bake uncovered at 350 for about 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). makes 12 servings.....ENJOY!

i make bacon to eat with this and it's a delicious start to a sweet day!
