My sister makes her French toast with La Brea Bakery Rosemary bread (widely available at Costco, Ralph’s and I’m certain a market near you). This always sounded a bit cooky to me, until I tried it. Now my family is hooked too. There is something about it that just works. Thanks Sis!
Rosemary Bread French Toast (6 servings)
- 8 slices of artisan bread, thickly sliced (we use La Brea Bakery Rosemary Bread)
- 10 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup milk
- ⅓ cup Amaretto
- 1 tsp cinnamon or nutmeg
- Real maple syrup
Add milk to beaten eggs in a large bowl. Add Amaretto and spices. Lay bread in a 9×13 pan. Pour egg mixture over the top. Allow to sit for ten minutes. Turn slices over. Allow the bread to sit for ten additional minutes. This can be done the night before and refrigerated over night.
Heat a griddle to medium-high heat. Fry French toast slices in butter or margarine on the griddle until a golden brown on both sides.
Serve warm with real maple syrup. I believe fake maple syrup is an abomination.
