Lavender Lemon French Toast

Lavender Lemon French Toast

My son was home for the July 4th weekend, so I always make some special meals. I whipped up this awesome French toast infused with lavender and lemon flavoring. I found a wonderful lavender lemon simple syrup that was my inspiration. Cutting super fat pieces of bakery challah bread, doesn’t hurt either. My son loved it!

BREAKFAST

No April foolin’ around with this French Toast ~ this here is the real deal! Made it with the extra-thick sliced special sour-white loaf (toned down sourdough bread) from my local bakery, The Bread Box. It was then soaked in heavy cream, eggs, cinnamon & vanilla. YASSS! Topped it with fresh whipped cream & Poteet strawberries roasted w/maple syrup, vanilla & thyme. Don’t be an April Fool – make your family this special treat!

French Toast w/Roasted Strawberries

Yield: 4 Servings

French Toast w/Roasted Strawberries

Ingredients

  • 8 thick slices of white bread (I used the sour-white from The Bread Box)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Dash salt
  • Butter for the griddle
  • Syrup and fruit for topping

Instructions

  1. Heat a griddle to 375 degrees.
  2. In a baking dish large enough to hold your bread slice, mix all ingredients except the butter, toppings & bread.
  3. Once the griddle is heated, dip both sides of the bread in the egg & milk mixture. Do not let the bread soak for too long. Place a pat of butter on the griddle and immediately place the dipped bread on top of the butter to cook.
  4. Both sides should be golden brown when finished cooking. Serve immediately, with desired toppings.

Notes

If you feel your dipping mixture is too thick, add more milk. Once you make a few slices of French toast, you may need to add more cinnamon to the milk & egg mixture, so that all pieces get cinnamon.

It’s a gorgeous day in San Antonio & this breakfast just shouts GOOD MORNING!!! These BREAKFAST TOSTADOS are our version of toast, around here!

Topped it all with pretty watermelon radishes, sprouts, cilantro, tomatillo salsa & Humble House Guajillo & Red Jalapeño Aged Tangy Garlic Sauce.

There’s just something about enjoying your morning coffee & breakfast w/the smell & feel of a real newspaper. On my Instagram post, someone even suggested it is romantic. I agree! BREAKFAST is SPROUTS, instead of hash browns, 2 slices of BACON, a gorgeous thick slice of TOASTED MARBLE RYE, and a SUNNY SIDE UP EGG topped with RED JALAPEÑO TANGY GARLIC SAUCE (ain’t that a mouthful)! A superior way to start the morning ~ real food & a real newspaper!

Not sure who deserves top billing on this Valentine post… Is it the lovely marble rye from The Bread Box OR the sunny egg OR the heart shaped avo? Either way, treat your sweetie to this lovely breakfast & you’ll get your own star on the Valentine Walk of Fame!

Additional Deets: Toasted a thick slice of Marble Rye bread. Fried the egg in a cute little pan, and I mean little, that makes a perfect circle. Practiced a bunch of times and managed to make an avocado heart. Topped this beauty with thyme and EB seasoning.

Nine Grain Toast w/German Sugar Beet Syrup, Bananas & Hemp Seeds

BREAKFAST

My mom, who was from Mettmann, Germany, loved German sugar beet syrup. Before the internet was big for online purchases, we would rice to Austin to purchase a case at a time, from a specialty shop that could get this liquid gold. My mom used to make toast, slathered w/butter & this good stuff! Today, I’m sharing the updated version. I still put butter, but the banana and hemps seeds were a perfect compliment.  Ich bin so froh, dass ich @Graschaftenr Zuckersirup online bestellen kann. Es schmeckt wie ein kleines Stück Deutschland.
