BBF: French Toast with Berries

Posted on: September 23, 2010

french toast

I’ve never been much of a breakfast person. Aside from cheese grits and bacon, I don’t really like any type of breakfast food. When I go to brunch, I order from the lunch menu. At home breakfast usually means cereal, but occasionally I get in the mood to make a real breakfast and on a lazy and rainy Sunday morning I decided to make another brat boy favorite. French toast!!

For the bread I used La Boulange brioche and for the batter I used beaten eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. But to add a special twist, I caramelized the french toast, an idea that I got from one of my copies of Gourmet magazine. To caramelize the french toast all you need to do is mix equal parts brown sugar and room temperature butter and melt it, 2 tblspns at a time, in a large non-stick skillet. Dip your bread in the egg batter and put in the skillet with the melted butter/sugar mixture. Cook over medium-high heat until the bread starts to turn a deep brown. Spread a layer of butter/sugar mixture over the slice of bread facing up, then flip over and cook until deep brown also.

Plate, top with your favorite toppings, which for me is strawberries and blueberries, powdered sugar and top quality, organic maple syrup. This is one of the easiest and most delicious breakfast items I have made to date. My brat boy definitely enjoyed it. I think he ate 3 or 4 slices. 😛

Ever since I was a little country bumpkin growing up in Alabama, I dreamed of living in a big city. No longer would I have to only befriend the local farm animals. I would have real people friends! I would wear suits and be important. And I'd be able to eat foreign foods like tacos or spaghetti.


Now here I am, living in San Francisco where I'm constantly surrounded by great food and food sources. And now I'm going to write about all of it. What I eat, what I cook. Where I shop for ingredients. Basically anything and everything about what I love most. FOOD!
