 French Toast Meets the Sandwich & Falls in Love!!

What is comfort food. To me it’s something warm, satisfying and just a little bit decadent! This is definitely all that and more!!

Maybe it’s the snow melting and that hint of Spring in the air but it seems like every time I go to the grocery store lately I’m drawn in by the berries. I know they’re still not local and don’t really taste any better than they did a month ago but somehow it’s knowing that soon I can go and pick them that makes me want to cook with them endlessly right now!

This recipe is simple, quick and tastes divine! If you can use challah or brioche my personal feeling is that it tastes better and works out more easily! The texture of these breads and the slightly sweet flavour makes them perfect for French toast.

Be careful not to soak the bread too long. You want it wet but not falling apart. Make sure the pan is greased well and at a good medium high temp. You know what it’s like…envision that first pancake in the pan. Almost always a fail; bad colour and mushy! Heat is everything!

 

If you don’t have raspberries, use strawberries or blueberries, you could even use sautéed apples. There’s no great science to this people. Eat what comforts YOU!

    Loving the pictures. The black background really helps the other colours stand out. I have had a weekend full of naughty food, but will be storing this recipe up for my next comfort splurge in the kitchen.
