Happy Friday! I hope those of you who celebrate had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a delicious treat for French Fridays with Dorie this week: Sugar-Crusted French Toast.
Apparently in France, French toast is considered a dessert. But here in the United States we eat it for breakfast.
Making Sugar-Crusted French Toast starts out pretty much like most French toast recipes. Slices of brioche are soaked in a rich mixture of eggs, whole milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla. What sets this recipe apart, and makes it extra good, is the sprinkling of sugar on the pan that gives the French toast a caramelized sugar coating. Oh, my!
This is hearty French toast. I made half the recipe and one slice was definitely enough for one person. But it was oh, so good. Perfect for a special breakfast, or any day you feel like indulging.
