Creme Brulee French Toast

Kathleen made this recipe twice during the week of Christmas.  We used regular bread the first time and Brioche the second.  Two of us preferred the thicker bread, and two liked the regular!  Try it and make your own decision!  Yummy.

1- 1.5 lb loaf Brioche sliced thick (about 8- one inch slices) day old is best
5 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1 1/4 cups half and half
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoon sugar
butter for cooking

Beat eggs, egg yolk, half and half, vanilla and sugar together in a 9x13 pan. 
 
Place the bread in the pan and let the bread soak up the egg on one side for about 5 minutes, then turn and let soak on other side. If the bread does not fit all at once in the pan, let the bread soak, then remove to plate to allow other pieces to fit in pan. Let any excess egg mixture drip off into pan.

Heat frying pan or griddle up to 350 degrees. Melt a small amount of butter in pan. Place french toast pieces in pan and fry until golden on first side. While cooking the first side, sprinkle a small amount of sugar on the uncooked side. Flip and cook other side until golden and sugar is caramelized.
