- Comments Off on Savory French Toast & Grown-up poptart recipes
One of our fans on facebook, Amelia, was looking for her favorite items now that she’s moved away. So we couldn’t help but abridge. Want a recipe? Let us know, we’ll scale it to make at home (save for the cupcakes)
Sweet and Savory French Toast
You’ll need the recipe for our french toast dip below.
French toast dip:
Our french toast dip recipe – enough for 4-6 servings. Enough to save and keep in the fridge.
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup cream
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon Nielsen Massey vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 lb ham, shaved
1 cup swiss cheese, grated
6 or more slices of thick-cut challah bread
1 tablespoon (heaping) of whole grain mustard
1 cup of real maple syrup
Heat then eat:
Set your griddle to medium high or 325, preheat oven to 400. When griddle is hot, coat lightly with pan spray – dip bread in french toast dip. Place dipped bread on griddle. Flip french toast when golden brown (2 – 3 minutes).
In a small saute pan, layer the french toast with the ham and swiss cheese. Place in oven and bake until cheese is melted and bubbling (2 -3 minutes).
Mix and pour mustard-syrup on top – enjoy.
Unfortunately, the “bread” we use for the poptart isn’t really available in stores. It’s a sweeter bread and very soft. So we came up with a modified version for at home creation below.
1 package of sweet bread (example: hawaiian bread) cut into two halves
1/4 cup preserves of choice
1/4 cup mascarpone
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
For each servings lay out 2 slices of bread. Spread one side with preserves and the other with marscapone; sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Put together and butter both sides. Place on a hot griddle, toast until golden brown on both sides – eat!
