Savory French Toast

I’m thinking of breakfast right now.  Two cups of coffee into a Sunday morning and I’m ready to cook.  Browsing The Huffington Post this morning revealed a treat of a recipe that would work fabulously with Fleurt Sundried Tomato OR Chipotle Lime butter.  And yes, I’m still talking about breakfast.

Crispy Salt & Pepper French Toast

5 eggs
3T half-and-half
1t salt
2t fresh ground black pepper
8 x 1/2″ slices day-old bread, cut on diagonal (prefer country or pullman loaf – something sturdy to hold up to egg batter w/o getting mushy)

1. In a bowl beat together eggs, half-and-half, salt and pepper.  Depending on which butter you intend to use, mix in a tablespoon of finely chopped basil or cilantro – or add nothing.  There’s certainly enough flavor in the Fleurt!

2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.  Cover the bottom of the skillet with vegetable oil and add a tablespoon or two of plain butter for taste.

3. Dip the bread triangles into the egg batter, drain off excess, and place into the hot pan.  Fry for 2-3 mins per side – you’re aiming for golden brown color and the texture should be crispier than traditional French toast. 

4.  Serve with Sundried Tomato or Chipotle Lime butter.  Eggs on the side would be delicious!

About Fleurt Butter

Butter's been given a bad rap over the years and I'm on a mission to make butter sexy again; to take delicious, flavorful, colorful, sensuous butter. I am not a chef; I blush when I refer to myself as a 'cook' because that seems too generous. Sometimes I turn out dishes that I am incredibly proud of, often times I'm just pleased to get something on the table without burning the house down. The idea behind Fleurt is that using it in meal preparation enables me to put fabulous food on the table in front of my family and friends with a minimum risk of botching the job! I should warn you that I can not be held responsible for all grammatical errors and general rambling...I might be undergoing 'therapy' as I write (see my 1st post). I'm writing these posts and cringing as I do so. I've yet to be convinced that people actually want to read what I write, but I am hopeful that the recipes I post are used and enjoyed. I certainly have fun testing them and finding ways to bring Fleurt into my daily life!
