French Toast

Sentry Insurance's @1800 Restaurant brings you a recipe for French toastWhat better way to start off your weekend than a Saturday breakfast of French toast? You’ll enjoy the tasty twist that @1800’s Culinary Team Member David hayes brings to this tasty treat.

French Toast  serves 4       

Ingredients:

  • 2   Eggs
  • ½ cup Coconut Milk
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • ½ tsp  Bourbon Vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp  Fresh ground Nutmeg
  • 12 Slices of bread, left out the night before
  • Canola oil or pan spray as needed
  • Ground Cinnamon for dusting

Directions:

In a bowl, blend the eggs, coconut milk, milk, vanilla, and nutmeg with an immersion blender; if you don’t have one a whisk will work just fine.

Heat a pan over medium heat, dip each piece of bread into the milk and egg mixture, let the bread soak in some of the mixture and then let it rest on a plate for a few seconds before putting it into the pan.  Before you add the first batch of toasts, oil or spray the pan to prevent sticking.  Place the rested slices of bread in the hot pan, and dust the back of the toast with cinnamon, when the first side has become golden brown, flip over and brown the other side.  Remove and repeat until all the bread is used.  To hold the pieces of French toast while the rest cook you can have you oven heated to 200 degrees and hold them on a baking pan.

Serve with butter, cinnamon and sugar, and pure maple syrup

A tasty variation is to use zucchini or banana bread instead of regular bread
