Originally a way to use up stale bread, hot, steaming French toasts are now the perfect addition to a brunch, as well as making a delicious cold weather breakfast treat. Since it’s an experimental recipe to begin with, there have been various ways devised, over the years, to enjoy this classic combination of bread and egg. Here, we have assembled a diverse group of savory, salty, custardy, and sweet varieties of this favorite that are all guaranteed to please.
Pina Colada French Toast
With just a few ingredients and little effort, this recipe makes for a great breakfast. All you need in your fridge are pina colada drink mix, eggs and bread. Whisk together about 8 eggs, milk, and pina colada mix in a bowl. Soak both sides of each bread slice in the mixture, and place it on heated pan, greased with melted butter. Pan-fry until the french toast is golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat, for as many you want to make. To serve, top it with sliced bananas and maple syrup, or you can use honey also.
Banana Bread French Toast
This recipe is a personal innovation on a hungry night. All there was in the fridge was a packet of banana bread and eggs. Those of you, who have sweet tooth, will understand why this combination would make an awesome morning desert. In a bowl, whisk together some eggs, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla essence. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Slice banana bread into 4 thick slices, dip each slice into the egg mixture, and then place them on a heated pan. Cook each side until golden brown, dust it with sugar, and serve.
Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast
Take my word; peanut butter with banana is better than Nutella chocolate with Banana! Don’t believe it? Try it on your French toast. This treat is great way to start the day, because it’s just so delicious! In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg and vanilla essence together. Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on each slice of bread and place banana slices on one and make a sandwich. Dip the sandwich into the egg mixture and place it on a heated pan. Cook until brown on both sides. Serve it hot with butter or syrup.
Sausage French Toast
This is a savoury preparation of French toast for those of you who would rather stay away from sweet. To start, butter a shallow baking dish and arrange some bread slices in it, overlapping slightly. Place sausage slices between bread slices. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon salt until combined. Pour egg mixture over bread and sausage, pressing down on bread to submerge. Cover dish tightly and place it in a microwave. Cook it until it puffs and sets. Let it cool, and serve with toppings of lettuce, small tomatoes and coriander.
French Toast with Grape Pulp
French toasts sure taste the best with syrups. So here is the simplest syrup recipe you can prepare with your classic French toasts. To start, wash some grapes, place it in a cooking pan with 1 cup of water and ½ cup sugar. Sprinkle some cinnamon and let it reduce. Keep smashing the grapes to form pulp. You can also use canned grape pulp. In the meantime, make your French toasts by dipping bread slices into a mixture of eggs, milk and sugar, and pan frying it. Prepare your serving and pour the syrup on the toasts.
We all are staunch fans of this amazingly yummy dish. So why not give it a twist with these simple, no-mess recipes! Try these delicious recipes and brighten up your mornings.
