Browned Butter Brioche French Toast

My husband absolutely loves a delicious sugary breakfast, so for his birthday I made a Browned Butter Brioche French Toast (do I need to give you a moment to clean up your drool? I’ll wait.). I thought using brioche bread would take it to the next level, but what really makes this oh-so-good is the browned butter drizzled over it. Ohhhh man is it good. Now that I’m thinking about it, you can drizzle browned butter on a pretty much anything and it will instantly take it up a notch. If you’re new to browning butter, let me give you some tips. It’s super easy, but you’re going to want to get it right for the very best flavor.
