Savory French Toast (with wine orange juice spritzer)



Savory French Toast

(adapted from Indian French Toast in Indian in 6)


Sourdough Bread, 3 slices

Eggs, 3

Greens, 2-3 leaves, chopped

garlic, 1 clove, minced

spices, to taste (I used all spice, cumin, red pepper flakes,a squirt of siracha and salt)

siracha sauce and ketchup, to taste, for garnish

How to:

Mix together the eggs, spices, greens and garlic.  Soak the bread in the egg mixture on both sides.  Cook in a skillet over medium heat until both sides are browned (about 2-3 minutes per side). Remove toast, cooke up the eggs into scrambled eggs. Serve immediately with eggs on top of the toast.  I like ketchup on the side too.

Tasting notes:

Lisa- This was a refrigerator leftovers recipe.  I needed to use up some bread and greens.  I also had a splash of white wine and some seltzer water left, so I combined those with some orange juice. Gary was out of town, so as my mother taught me, it was time for “breakfast for dinner”, but I needed to use the greens, so savory french toast seemed like a better idea than sweet.  This is one of my go to “I don’t really want to cook but Gary is gone so I have to” recipes.  Tasty, quick and simple.
