Using the same French technique that we use when making a blender Hollandaise (such as the delicious one in this Eggs Benedict recipe), we create a thick batter of cream, eggs, and spices. Then we dip thick slices of Brioche or Challah Bread, or even French Bread (although that might make this French Toast a French French French Toast, which seems a bit redundant), into our amazing batter. After which the battered bread is placed on a skillet griddle and then cooked to perfection!
Hey you! If you are looking for the recipe and don’t want to read all my blah blah blah (but hilarious) commentary, I totally understand! Just skip to the bottom of the page and you will find the recipe outlined in pink. Thanks for visiting Flirting with Flavor :).
Y’all this French Toast recipe is the bomb! If you’ve got a special day coming up, such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a Birthday, or a Wednesday; I highly suggest surprising your loved one with some pretty flowers and a French Toast breakfast in bed.
In my Ragu Bolognese recipe I taught you how to speak Italian. Today I will be teaching you French. You’re Welcome, or shall I say ““Je t’en prie!”
Reader, in case you are getting overly excited about your new gift of tongues, you should be aware that I learned to speak French from a couple of google searches and awesome movies such as”Beauty and the Beast” and the old classic “Gigi” (which by the way, is totally not appropriate for six year old’s to watch, but I knew every single word of her song “I don’t understand the Parisians; Making love every time they get the chance!” by the time I was six. Seriously, I really did. I did not however, have any clue whatsoever as to what that meant. Ha!).
So definitely take that into account before booking a flight to France to go try out your newfound amazing abilities.
Also, if you trust me and my language skills enough to be booking a flight to France based off of my knowledge, then I believe we are bosom buddies; Two of a kind; Intended to be lifelong friends… Therefore, you should probably book a flight for me as well! We are going to have a lovely time in France together. We should eat Toast while in France; French Toast!
With Love, Juli XOXOX (and those “X”s are totally on each cheek, because that’s they way they do it in France. You don’t believe me? Ask the dishes.)
Love and Art
Love, my dear Gigi, is a thing of Beauty. Like a work of Art. And like a work of art, it is created by artists. The greater the artist, the greater the art. And what makes an artist?
Cigars and Jewelry?
Gigi, you’re from another Planet.
I agree! Cigars and Jewelry? No dear Gigi, what makes an artist is passion! Whether their art be painting, cooking or flying! They are only a poser until they have passion for their work. Or I should say “la passion”.
I am a photographer by trade, however my passion is found in cooking. By combining my passion with my skills, we find art…
Seriously y’all, I am taking a moment and I am going to brag about myself. Not only do I speak French so flawlessly (Je parle français impeccablement), but I also made this delicious French Toast and then I made art with the photos! Oooh, I totally understand the Parisians!, making Beauty, Love, Art; every time they get the chance…
Enough talk, let’s eat!
Recipe for the Best French Toast Ever:
- 6-10 slices of thick cut Bread (I suggest Brioche, Challah or French Bread)
- Butter fot the pan if you are not using a non-stick griddle
- 3 Eggs
- 3 Egg Yolk (So yes, a total of 6 eggs)
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 3 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
- Dash of Nutmeg
- Dash of Cinnamon
- Dash of Salt
- 1/2 cup Cream
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- In a wide container or a pie dish, combine the eggs, vanilla, spices, sugar and salt. Mix well.
- In a separate (microwave proof container), place your cream and butter.
- Heat the Cream and Butter for 45 seconds-1 minute until it is Hot and barely simmering.
- *note that you can also do that step in a small saucepan wiped down with butter, on the stove-top!
- Then slowly add the Cream-Butter mixture to the egg mixture, while whisking briskly the entire time. The heat from the Cream will slightly cook the eggs and thicken the whole of it.
- Preheat your oven to 200 F degrees.
- Dip each piece of Bread in the Batter and let it really coat it, flipping to get each side.
- On your electric griddle at a medium heat (about 275 F degrees), place the battered bread.
- *You can also cook it stove top in a pan that has a little bit of butter added and melted on the bottom to keep the French Toast from sticking.
- Let it cook until golden and then flip and let the opposite side cook as well.
- When both sides have been browned, transfer your French Toast to the oven, until all of the pieces have been cooked.
- Serve with Butter, whipped Cream, Jam, Strawberries, or Syrup.
