French toast on our day off together was the perfect way to begin the week. Well… almost.
Day old Challa bread sliced into 3/4 inch slices. Cover them in a baking dish or bowl for about 10 minutes each side in cup and a half of heavy cream, 5 eggs, 2 shakes of cinnamon, one shake nutmeg, 2 caps of vanilla, and a pinch of salt.
Throw a tablespoon of butter in a griddle or in a pan and grill at med high for about 5 minutes each side.
I ad hoc’d a tasty banana sauce by tossing a few tablespoons of butter in a pan. Let it melt slowly, then add a tablespoon of brown sugar, 1/4 cup fresh orange juice, and several splashes of amaretto if you have it (I always have it). I sliced 2 ripe bananas then turned it up to medium heat and let it thicken a bit.
Plate it with oven baked bacon, a little orange zest, and some sifted confectioner sugar, then let the mouth explosion begin!
Off to the gym!
