Sugar- Crusted French Toast

Sugar-Crusted French Toast
by Dorie Greenspan 

Ingredients: 6 eggs + 3 egg yolks, 2 cups milk, 1 1/2 cups cream, 1 1/3 cups sugar, 1 tbsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp salt, 6 slices bread, 6 tbsp butter ( I halved the recipe for a single serving ) 

To do this: Whisk the eggs, yolks, milk, cream, 2/3 cup of sugar, vanilla and salt together in a large baking pan. Add as many slices of bread as you can to the pan and allow the bread to soak for about 3 minutes on each side.

Place  a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat and add about 2 tbsp of butter. When it melts and the bubbles subside, sprinkle the pan evenly with about 1 1/2 tbsp sugar and add as many slices of soaked bread as you can without crowding the pan. Cook the bread until it is deeply golden and crusty on the underside then sprinkle the tops of the slices with sugar to lightly coat them and carefully flip them over, cook until the second side is equally browned and crusty. Transfer to a platter, cover loosely with foil, and keep warm while you cook the remaining bread. Before adding more slices of soaked bread, wipe the pan clean and add fresh butter and sugar. Top it off with our favorite toppings and it's ready to be serve.
