1 loaf baguette bread
4 large egg yolks
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2/3 cup sugar in the raw
Cut the baguette at a diagonal into 12 each 1 inch thick slices that are 4 inch long. Combine the egg yolks, eggs, half and half, vanilla extract and Grand Marnier in a mixing bowl and whip with a wire whisk for 5 minutes or until mixture is light and fluffy. Place the baguette slices in a rectangular baking dish. Pour the egg mixture over the bread slices and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Turn the bread slices over in the dish and let sit in the refrigerator for 30 additional minutes. Drain excess egg mixture from the bread slices.
Working in four small batches, melt 1/2 tablespoon butter in a nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Place three slices of baguette in the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Turn slices over and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Place baguette slices on a broiler pan. Repeat until all the baguette slices are cooked. Evenly sprinkle sugar over each baguette slice. Place broiler pan under a hot broiler for 20-30 seconds until sugar is bubbly, but be careful not to scorch or burn the bread.
Arrange baguette slices on a warm platter and serve with Mascarpone whipped cream. Fresh berries and warm syrup are additional options as well….or rich chocolate ganache if you're feeling truly sinful.
Mascarpone Whipped Cream:
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
Place a metal or glass mixing bowl in the freezer for 1 hour. Combine cream, sugar and vanilla extract in the bowl and beat with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Slowly beat in the mascarpone cheese until incorporated. Place in a clean container, cover and chill for up to 4 hours.
For the pork chops: Trim any excess fat from the chops. Season with salt and pepper.Brown the chops on both sides in a skillet. Place the pan in the oven and cook until the pork chops are fully cooked. Time will vary depending on the thickness of the chops, about 12-15 minutes in the oven.
For the Sauce: Prepare the sauce while the chops are cooking. Heat olive oil in a pan. Add the mushrooms and prosciutto. Cook for 8-9 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender and lightly browned.Add the garlic. Cook for another minute or two. Then removed the cooked mushrooms, prosciutto, and garlic and set aside. Add the marsala to the hot pan. Bring to a simmer and cook until the liquid has reduced to about 1/4 cup. Add the chicken broth. Return to a simmer and cook until a little more than 1 cup of liquid remains.
Place the cornstarch in a small bowl. Spoon a few tablespoons of the hot liquid into the cornstarch and stir until combined. (Dissolving the cornstarch in a small amount of liquid before adding to the sauce will help to prevent lumps from forming.) Then, add the cornstarch mixture to the pan and simmer for another minute or two to thicken. Return the mushroom mixture to the pan and simmer for a minute to reheat.
To serve: Upon removing the pork chops from the oven, sprinkle over the fontina cheese. Allow the pork chops to rest and the cheese to melt for a couple minutes. Then spoon the sauce over the chops and serve.
