Creme Brûlée French Toast

Ok you guys, I have the PERFECT Christmas breakfast for you and your family. This Creme Brûlée French Toast is amazing! I mean, just check out that chewy layer of caramel...This really is some of the best french toast I've ever had.
This can easily be made Christmas morning or prepped the night before so all you have to do is simply pop it in the oven and then your family will be asking for this french toast every year.

Since it's already loaded with so much sweetness, I suggest serving it with some fresh berries for a little bit of tart.
The best part is it's baked in your oven so no flipping and monitoring the bread on a griddle. Basically set it and forget it.

Be sure to save this recipe and make it this holiday season!

Creme Brûlée French Toast
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 Tbsp. corn syrup
8-10 (1 in. thick) slices French bread
2 eggs
1/2 cup half-and-half
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup orange juice
1/8 tsp. salt
orange zest for garnish

1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and corn syrup and cook until sugar has dissolved. Pour into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange slices of the French bread in a single layer on top of the sugar mixture.
2. In a medium bowl, add the eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, orange juice and salt. Whisk until combined. Pour the mixture evenly over bread slices. Cover tightly and refrigerate for 20 minutes.*
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and take the baking dish out of the fridge to come to room temperature as your oven heats up.
4. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and immediately flip the dish upside-down onto a serving plate. Garnish with orange zest and serve.

* You can double the egg mixture and let it soak overnight if needed.
