savory french toast

Well not nothing, exactly, but with stuff that you have on hand in the fridge and in the bread box.  It’s a savory take on french toast that you can garnish to the hilt- or – as far as your pantry/fridge will take you.

  • 2 slices of thick-cut bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan or other hard cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon safflower or other neutral tasting oil
  1. In a shallow pan whisk together eggs and milk
  2. Lay out grated cheese on a plate or platter alongside the milk/egg combo.
  3. Dunk bread slices, one at a time, into the yolky mixture, so that it is fully submerged and is able to absorb the viscosity.
  4. Remove and gently shake of excess yolk coverage and then coat in grated parm on both sides.
  5. In a large frying pan heat oil and butter over medium high temperature, until butter melts and starts to bubble.
  6. Carefully slide bread slices into the pan  and fry for approximately 2 minutes on each side or until the toast is golden brown and the cheese is well-melted.

Some Garnish Ideas: Roasted tomatoes, sauteed spinach, fried egg,
