French toast growing up as a kid was always my favorite breakfast my mom could make. But let me preface this by saying that this was French Toast Iranian Style. So take everything you know about fluffy french toast and powdered sugar and just throw it in the trash. How’s that for a visual, huh?
My mom would take sliced whole wheat bread, dip it in egg, cook it in butter and put honey on it. Despite it not being what you traditionally think of as french toast, it was still delicious.
So this takes us to today’s post. I found myself on the Long Island Sound overlooking a beautiful view. I always like to take care of my hosts, so I decided to make some innovative french toast using wait for it….FRENCH BREAD!!! How very international no?
So this is ridiculously easy and super delicious. I hope you enjoy!
1 Day Old French Baguette
1 Stick of Butter
1/8 Cup of Milk
1/4 Cup of Sugar
1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsp. of Flour
Slice the baguette in to 1/8 inch thick pieces. Beat your eggs, vanilla extract, and milk together to make a egg batter. Melt half of your stick of butter, add your sugar, brown sugar and flour to make your crumble. At first it’ll look like a paste and as it cooks, it’ll harden up. Pull it off the heat before it gets too hard, you want the crumble to be crumbly in your hands.
Once your crumble is made, start dipping your bread into the egg batter. Let it soak up the egg batter, the baguette will be crusty so it needs to soak up the batter.
Heat the rest of your butter in a pan, and as it begins to foam up, add your bread and brown both sides.
Once you are all done, sprinkle on some powdered sugar and enjoy!
