You should start your day with this delicious Caramel French Toast and tell me that you don’t feel amazing afterwards!
1/2 cup milk
4 slices of bread, sliced 1 1/2 inches thick
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup half & half or whole milk
Preheat oven to 375.
Whisk together egg and milk until well combined. Place bread in mixture to soak.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine sugar and water. Cook over medium heat, swirling gently until sugar just begins to turn amber in color. Add butter and half & half. (The caramel will easily be enough for up to 8 slices of bread.)
Pour caramel into an 8x8inch baking dish. Arrange the 4 slices of bread on top of the caramel. Pour egg mixture over the bread.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, until egg mixture is set and tops of bread are toasted.
Drizzle with caramel sauce from pan or serve with syrup.
