Caramelized French Toaste

Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 6 egg
  • 1⁄2 cup milk
  • 1⁄8 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp butter, divided
  • 8 slice bread
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup (up to 1/2) boiling water

Directions

  1. Beat together eggs, milk, and salt in a shallow dish. Dip bread one at a time into egg mixture, turning to coat both sides.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a nonstick frying pan or skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, cook bread for 2-3 minutes per side until golden. After 4 slices have been cooked, melt 2 tablespoons butter and cook remaining bread.
  3. Once all of the bread has been cooked, reduce heat to medium. Add 1 tablespoon butter and brown sugar to the pan and stir constantly. When the mixture starts to melt, slowly add boiling water a little bit at a time until the sauce is desired consistency. When all of the sugar has melted, gently boil for a couple minutes while continuing to stir until the sauce is bubbly and has thickened. Place French toast in caramel sauce. Turn to coat, then remove from pan.
