Bourbon Infused French Toast


1 tablespoon Butter

1 Loaf Brioche Bread, sliced 3/4” thick

1 1/3 cup Whole Milk

4 Eggs, lightly beaten

2 tablespoons Bourbon

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg

Bourbon Maple Syrup

1 cup Maple Syrup

3 tablespoons Bourbon


Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

To make the bourbon maple syrup, combine the maple syrup and bourbon in a small sauce pot. Bring to a low simmer. Simmer for 1 minute and remove from heat. Let the bourbon infuse for at least 10 minutes before serving. Re-warm if necessary.

In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, bourbon, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set side.

In a skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Working in batches, soak each slice of brioche in the egg mixture for 45 seconds to a minute on each side. Transfer to the skillet. Cook each slice for 5-6 minutes on each side until golden brown. Transfer to a baking sheet to keep warm in the oven while you continue to make the other slices.

When finished, plate the french toast and drizzle with bourbon infused maple syrup.
