French Toast



I love French toast. I normally have to try an convince Big Pete to eat it but, not today. I made this with some of my leftover Greek Easter Bread - Tsoureki but, it would work perfectly well with brioche or challah breads. Add some back bacon, some fresh berries and of course real maple syrup and you have a gorgeous breakfast! Make sure you pour the syrup on the bacon because it makes a perfect sweet and salty bite and don't forget the coffee!

You will need:
  • 4-6 slices egg bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • pinch salt
  • olive oil and butter for cooking
  • bacon - I used back bacon sometimes called Canadian bacon
  • fresh blueberries
  • powdered sugar
  • real maple syrup


Step 1: in a small bowl that will fit your slices of bread add eggs, milk, vanilla paste, flour and a pinch of salt. Whisk with a fork or whisk until combined. If you still have a bit of flour not blended  in don't worry. Slice bread and set both aside.


Step 2: cook your bacon and set aside.


Step 3: add just a tiny amount of butter - mine 1/2 tbsp and 1-2 tbsp olive oil. I used a light fruity Greek olive oil. Heat pan.


Step 4: dip bread in egg mix for a few seconds and flip over to soak other side of bread. Add bread to hot pan and cook for a few minutes on medium heat. Flip and cook on other side. They should be nicely browned. 


Serve with bacon, fresh blueberries, powdered sugar and of course warm maple syrup!
