It’s simple really.
I’ve now discovered that, thanks to my tall handsome husband, I am addicted to French toast. It’s true. And as surely as Bunker is drooling over the peanut butter jar in the picture above I am now dreaming up roughly 2,000 different French toast stuffings in my brain as I write. This has got to be a gift from God, this stuffed French toast thing.
And the best part? The best part is there’s really no “recipe” per se; you get the basic custard down and then use whatever bread you like and whatever stuffing you like. For me this morning it was day-old rolls from a local bakery and the remaining peanut butter and white chocolate chips we have in our house. Tomorrow…well, let’s just say it’s probably only going to get more decadent as time rolls along.
BASIC FRENCH TOAST CUSTARD
- 2 whole eggs (if you’re going vegan do 2 flax eggs – 2 Tbsp milled flax mixed with 6 Tbsp warm water and let sit for 5 minutes)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk (whatever milk you have on hand)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Whisk everything together and let sit for a few minutes to let the sugar dissolve. Whisk again. Dunk your bread (in sandwich form if you’re stuffing it) and then cook on a buttered griddle for about 3-4 minutes on each side on a low heat.
