♥ Eggy Bread French Toast ♥
Eggy Bread is a Christmas Time dessert in Portugal and Brazil. Milk, sugar or cinnamon are usually added, where it is topped with sugar, butter, syrup or even fruits after frying. This recipe allows you to extend your creativity through all the substitution you would like for the filling, I have chosen almond butter and strawberry jam, which are normal breakfast filling. But honestly, why not peanut butter or other berries jams? Have a good start of the day.
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/2 pieces of whole wheat bread, halved
vegetable oil for frying
maple syrup for serving
cube of butter for serving
How to make french toast:
Crack egg in flat plate. Whisk in vanilla and milk, set aside.
Spread bread with almond butter, and form a sandwich. Soak into egg batter on both sides.
In a frying pan, heat oil and fry soaked sandwich gently on top and bottom until golden brown.
Repeat above with strawberry jam instead of almond butter.
Serve with dollop of butter and maple syrup if desired.
With all my love <3
