When Rafe was in Boston a few weekends ago we were foraging in my nearly empty fridge for the makings of a tasty breakfast. I only had 2 eggs - not nearly enough for a Sunday scramble....no cereal. No bread for toast, and only half of a trader joe's baguette.
I rarely indulge in sweet breakfasts, but putting on my refrigerator MacGyver hat I decided my option was simple. Use the french bread to make FRENCH TOAST. Rafe was skeptical....only having eaten french toast made with Challah or Texas Toast... But, I argued, if it's FRENCH toast you have to imagine that when they started making it, they likely only had FRENCH bread.
I cracked my two eggs into a bowl, added milk, vanilla, cinnamon and a little sugar. I sliced the french bread into little medallions and dropped them in for a quick soak while my butter melted and got all frothy.
The weekend is fast approaching, give this french toast a try on Saturday morning!
