Ingredients

  • 16 ounce loaf Brioche bread (thick sliced)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 T vanilla extract (can subsitute vanilla paste)

Optional:

  • butter for greasing griddle
  • ½ cup granulated sugar for crunchy coating

Instructions

  • Preheat griddle to medium. Allow griddle to come to desired temperature before cooking french toast.
  • Combine egg yolks, heavy cream, and vanilla in shallow, flat bottomed dish. Soak each slice of bread on both sides in mixture.
  • Grease griddle with butter. If griddle is non-stick, butter may not be needed. Add soaked slices to hot griddle and allow to cook, flipping only once, until golden brown on each side.
  • To add caramelized sugar layer, add thin layer of sugar to the top of each piece of cooked French toast and caramelize until golden and bubbly with a cooking torch. Alternatively, you may arrange the slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and set under the broiler until golden brown.
