JoSele's notes for this recipe:
This is what we make on Christmas morning to go with the Frittata...They go hand in hand....It is great when you can make it the night before and pop it in the oven and there it is....Who has time to do the breakfast cooking and then the Christmas Meal you have to cook too...I love French Toast and I love Creme Brulee so why not put it together....I didn't have a picture handy so used a free stock picture...
Make it Your Way...
