I saw this recipe on Yahoo! the other day and decided that it would (after a few minor tweaks) become our Black Friday breakfast. Here is my version:
Creme Brûlée French Toast
2 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk, or to taste
1 tablespoon Kahulua
6 to 8 tablespoons butter, softened
4 1-inch-thick slices heavy white bakery bread
Cinnamon Sugar (3/4 cup granulated sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon and mixed well)
Warm half-and-half almost to a simmer. Stir in sweetened condensed milk to taste. Stir in Kahulua. Reduce heat to low and let sit, stirring occasionally.
Spread 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of butter on one side of each slice of bread.
Broil the buttered bread on both sides (starting buttered side up) until the edges are lightly browned. Sprinkle on a heavy layer of cinnamon sugar to coat evenly.
Broil the toast again, sugared side up, just till well-browned and crackly. Don’t walk away or you’ll have charcoaled toast briquettes.
Pour the sweet milk into a pie plate. Set the toast in the sweet milk to soak up for about 30 seconds. Put an extra bit of the sweetened milk on each plate (and a dollop in your coffee) and serve.
