I mentioned making french toast with leftover brioche bread in a letter a week or so ago and OH BOY did that get my friend Jess excited. I then let her down immensely when I told her I don't love french toast. It's just not what I go for when I'm eating breakfast or brunch. I love a good savory breakfast. But I also don't love to waste food. Let alone bread that was really tough to make and took 10 eggs and a pound of butter. Oh no, I'm gonna eat it all.
So I give you, french toast. Or as the french say pain pardu.
2 tablespoons sugar
heafty dash of the good cinnamon
1 cup ish of milk
- Mix all ingredients together, throughly.
- Place old bread slices in the egg mixture, flipping occasionally. Let soak several minutes.
- In a medium heat pan, drop the soaked bread. Let bread drip excess egg and milk mixture in the bowl before putting in the pan.
- After 3-5 minutes, flip to other side for another 3-5 minutes. Depending on how thick your slice is is will depend on the done-ness. The slice should feel firm in the middle and not soft.
- Plate up the slices and drizzle some good ole' maple syrup from your friend who went to Montreal. Enjoy with a hot cup of coffee on a Saturday morning, or whenever really.
Things I'm watching, reading and listening to...
- This is beautifully revamped Ordeal By Innocence heightens the terror of this Agatha Christie story.
- This new podcast Stories I Tell On Dates from former NBA player Paul Shirely is hitting the spot for me. We all have a number of stories we share that help explain ourselves and our past experiences to one other.
- At 91 she's a YouTube star, so really, anything is possible.
- What's the difference between an expat and an immigrant? Race, of course.
Happy first day of school everybody!
