CREME BRULEE FRENCH TOAST
French toast is one of my favorite breakfasts. When I go out to eat, I will almost always order French Toast, Eggs Benedict, or a Denver Omelet. I recently made homemade Crème Brûléefor the first time and loved how simple yet decadent the recipe was. Just four simple ingredients came together to make the most heavenly dessert.
This French toast recipe goes above and beyond what you might expect from a typical French toast, and it’s even more of a treat than what you’re probably used to.
How Crème Brûlée French Toast is different than regular French Toast:
- The soak for standard French toast is typically made of whole eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. At least, that’s how I typically make it. The soak for Crème Brûlée French Toast is much richer. I used egg yolks instead of the whole egg. I also used heavy cream instead of milk. You can still use pure vanilla extract or you can go above and beyond and use vanilla paste. Finally, I didn’t add cinnamon to this Crème Brûlée French Toast recipe like I do with standard French toast.
- One of the defining features of Crème Brûlée is that hard, thin caramelized layer of burnt sugar. I was able to accomplish the same effect on this French toast.
What to serve with Crème Brûlée French Toast:
- You cannot go wrong with a crispy side of bacon or breakfast sausage. My standard go-to topping is a pad of butter and real maple syrup.
- Because this French toast is so rich and decadent, I highly recommend serving some tart berries alongside to balance out the sweet with some tart.
