Calling all breakfast people! Sunday Brunch in our house is a must. Whether we're going out or staying in, nothing compares to spending time over a satisfying breakfast. This recipe is sure to satisfy your sweet side. The bread's caramelized crusts and gooey center makes this dish unforgettable. I love a dish you can personalize & make your own by adding your favorite toppings. Mine are Strawberries & blueberries! & can't forget a few pieces of crispy bacon on the side. Happy cooking!

Caramelized French Toast

Makes 6 Servings

You will need: Whisk, Spatula, Skillet, Baking Pan, Parchment Paper

Bread Soak:

1 French Baguette

3 Eggs

1 1/2 Cups Milk (I used whole)

¾ Cup Brown Sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

1 ½ tsp. Cinnamon

½ tsp. Nutmeg

Caramel Sauce:

3Tbs Butter

¾ Cup Brown Sugar

¾ Cup Warmed Heavy Cream

1. Slice French Bread (I used 2 day old bread just because it was in the house but fresh is fine too).

Pro Tip: By cutting on an angle you are able to make larger slices

2. Whisk Eggs, Milk, ¾ Cup Brown Sugar, Vanilla, Cinnamon & Nutmeg together in baking dish (or other large bowl easy to fit multiple bread slices)

3. Heat Non-stick Skillet to Medium (if you don’t have a non-stick skillet just make sure to coat pan in cooking spray)

4. Soak bread in liquid for 30 seconds on each side.

5. Place Bread in Skillet 2-3 minutes per side or until toasted golden brown. Remove Bread from skillet to parchment lined baking sheet.

Now time for the yummy Caramel Sauce:

1. Melt Butter in skillet then add ¾ Cup brown sugar. Whisk until melted and bubbling.

2. In a mug heat the Heavy Cream in the microwave for 20 seconds. (I forgot to do this and when I added the cold heavy cream to the caramelizing sugar it immediately solidified..eeek!)

3. Add the warmed heavy cream to the skillet & whisk constantly. Once Caramel is bubbling add the bread for 1-2 minutes on each side or until caramelized. Remove from pan

Serve with your choice of berries or other fruits (Bananas are YUM). Whatever you have in the house – powdered sugar, pecans, ice cream etc. Throw it on top and it’s sure to be a hit. I’d love to see how you guys make it so leave comments and tag in all your experiments!

ENJOY..I know my friends and I did!
