Best French Toast EverPosted: May 9, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: Recipes | Leave a comment »
Today is Mother’s Day and the one day a year Mike makes breakfast for me. His specialty (my favorite) is French toast – and this year’s was amazingly delicious. What he does is very simple. He uses day-old Safeway sourdough bread, cut in thick slices. He mixes eggs with milk (lots of eggs, a whole loaf of bread would take about 8 eggs – but should serve 6 people easily) and soaks the bread on it. Then he cooks it on a non-stick pan. When it’s ready, he spreads a thick layer of mascarpone cheese on it and lets it melt. Once out of the pan he pours real maple syrup on it and tops it with sliced strawberries. The results are heavenly.
