This really turned out to be incredible. Probably the best french toast I have ever made. In the end you sprinkle turbinado sugar on top of the baked french toast and put it under the broiler for about 30 seconds. Then what happens is almost magical. The sugar carmelizes and when left to cool for a few minutes, turns into a hard candy shell on top. Almost like a french toast creme brulee!
You can use whatever bread you like but since I wanted my boys to have sustained energy for another day of skiing, I used multi-grain.
