Pinspiration in the Kitchen- Creme Brulee French Toast

I first saw this recipe when watching The Chew a couple of months ago, and instantly went online to find the recipe on the show's site and get that thing pinned. ;) And then I forgot about it.  Yeah, I know that I am not the only one who has pinned something that looked amazing and then forgot about it in a sea of Pinterest-inspired yumminess.  Luckily for me (and for you!), that very same episode re-aired earlier this week.  I decided that it would have to be our breakfast for the morning after the 4th of July holiday.

I love that the whole thing is thrown together the night before, and you could change up the recipe easily.  I didn't have any Brandy or Triple Sec, so I used some whipped cream flavor vodka instead.  (I am thinking next time that I might try Kahlua. ;) )  You could also just leave out all the alcohol and add extra vanilla extract, or even a flavored extract like coconut.
This french toast was moist and decadent.  I topped mine with a little drizzle of maple syrup and fresh whipped cream.  It is so incredibly easy to make homemade whipped cream that you really have no excuse not to whip some up for your french toast.  Just pour heavy whipping cream with a few tablespoons of sugar in a bowl and beat with a whisk attachment for 3-4 minutes.  That's it!
