This is a dessert french toast that is a special treat for breakfast as well. If you choose to substitute with a different liqueur I would reduce the amount to 1 tablespoons.
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup fat-free half-and-half
- 1⁄4 cup chai liqueur
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 5 slices French bread (3/4 inch thick slices)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 10 teaspoons brown sugar, divided
- vanilla ice cream
Directions See How It's Made
- Beat eggs, half & half, liqueur, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a large shallow dish.
- Add bread slices and let stand for about 2 minutes to absorb mixture. Turn and let stand 2 minutes more.
- Melt butter in a large skillet.
- Sprinkle 1 teaspoons brown sugar on each side of bread.
- Cook over medium to medium-high heat for about 2 to 3 minutes per side or until crisp, taking care not to burn sugar. (If sugar begins to burn, wipe out pan with a paper towel).
- Transfer to plates and top with a small scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of liqueur, if you like.
