French Toast Skillet takes the rich, custardy flavors of traditional French toast and cranks up the decadence! Thick-cut bread is soaked in a creamy sauce and then coated in a thick, buttery, and sweet caramel sauce. Cooked to a gorgeous golden brown, French Toast Skillet makes a beautiful breakfast that will help your day feel bright.
Ingredients• 8 eggs • 2 cups whole milk • 1 cup half-and-half • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract • 1 teaspoon sea salt • 1 loaf Texas toast, chopped into 1-inch squares For the caramel sauce: • 1 stick butter, unsalted • 1 cup brown sugar, dark or light • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
Whisk the eggs, milk, half-and-half, vanilla extract, and salt together.
Place the Texas toast in a 10-inch skillet.
Pour the egg mixture over the bread pieces.
Refrigerate overnight to allow the bread pieces to soak, at least 8 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup.
Heat the saucepan over medium heat until bubbling.
Pour the caramel sauce over the bread in the skillet.
Bake until the custard has been completely absorbed and the bread is golden-brown and caramelized, for about 40 minutes.
