Savory French Toast
4 to 6 slices of day old crusty French bread or ciabatta
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons heavy cream
¼ cup chopped shallot (onion or leek would also work)
1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
¼ teaspoon dried thyme (if using fresh thyme, add more)
2 tablespoon unsalted butter
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
fresh cracked pepper to taste
- Take the loaf of bread and cut through the center, lengthwise. Remove the crust and then slice four to six equal slices.
- In a pie pan combine the eggs, cream, shallot, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
- Meanwhile, place the butter in a medium sized saute pan and melt over medium-low heat.
- Dredge both sides of the the bread slices into the egg mixture and then place into the saute pan. Cook until both sides are nicely browned. Continue this process until all the slices are cooked.
