Savory French Toast With Cherry Tomatoes And Basil
Try Savory French Toast With Cherry Tomatoes And Basil from the new cookbook, No-Recipe Recipes.
“It’s axiomatic that a stash of leftover bread makes the best French toast for breakfast, and so it stands to reason that a savory version would be equally satisfying for the crew around your dinner table. At least that’s true in my house.”
- Whisk the eggs in a shallow bowl as you usually would for French toast, but omit any sugar and cinnamon, and instead hit the eggs with pepper, chopped basil and a dash of hot sauce.
- Slide some slices of old bread in there to soak, then fry up the toasts in butter.
- Scattering a few handfuls of halved cherry tomatoes into the pan as the bread cooks yields a fine topping. Sprinkle basil leaves over. Doubters will doubt no more.
