A few weeks ago, I randomly tried a new ‘recipe’. I’m finally getting around to posting it now- and perhaps post-Holidays, others will have breads they could use for this.
We had lots of leftover Irish Soda Bread that my mom had made for Nemo’s Christening. It was a Saturday morning and I wanted to make breakfast. I offered Mac French Toast, but when I went to the fridge, I saw the soda bread. I thought, “Why not?”
I basically did exactly as you would for french toast- egg, milk (I used half and half), and cinnamon. Because the soda bread was more dense than regular sliced bread, I had to leave it in to soak for a while.
Then, I sprinkled it with some brown sugar (so it would caramelize and get a little crisp), and cooked it on the griddle.
I had to cook it a little longer than usual because of the thickness. Overall it came our well. It was yummy and even Mabel tried some.
If I make it again, , I will wait to sprinkle the brown sugar to prevent it from burning during the longer cooking time. Also, I’ll soak the bread even longer- perhaps overnight, to allow the bread to really absorb the eggs/milk.
Have you used any ‘different’ breads for French Toast?
