C،osing bread: We used pre-sliced brioche bread that was about ½ inch thick for this French toast because we absolutely love the flavor of brioche. If you use a thicker piece of bread (any kind!), it may take longer for your bread to toast.
Don’t burn your toast! Place the cast iron s،et into the oven on the middle shelf when broiling — avoid the top shelf or your toast will burn. No one wants that!
Allow brown sugar to melt: Be sure you let the brown sugar melt completely before removing it from the oven. The cooled, melted brown sugar hardens and creates the creme brûlée top that ،s 😀
