Savory French Toast

recipe thursdayThis was a surprise. We had a half a French loaf and some eggs, but it was dinner…aha! A jar of pasta sauce, a few sausages and a dish of spinach with mushrooms, voila, dinner was done.

Savory French Toast

1/2 loaf french bread
3 eggs
3 Tblsp parmesan cheese (grated)
olive oil

Beat the eggs until smooth, blend in the parmesan, season with salt and pepper. Slice the bread into 1 or 2 cm slices. Dip the bread in the egg to coat, allowing excess egg to run back into the egg mixture. Fry on both sides over medium-high heat in a little olive oil.

Heat up some pasta sauce, serve on the side instead of maple syrup.

To gread chef May I ask you a gestion? —I’m sorry it’s not a comment about this topic.

What do you say “KIJI” in English?
To bake bread, cookeis, or puffs we usually make “dough”. Well, does it make sencse —“Let’s bake a pie (or sponge cake), I’ll show you how to make the dough (KIJI in Japanese)”
I’m glad if you help me studying English.

I got your e-mail. Thank you. I mastered another new English word —“batter”. Really thanks.

(Thanks to lil for the introduction: ) There is a legendary cafe in Shimokitazawa called ‘Sunday Brunch’ that serves many (8 at the last count? Cant remember…) different kinds of french toast, and two of them are savoury! Both of them are my favourite, ive never even tried the sweet ones. The original one is served with tomato base sauce with mushrooms, onions and bacon, with a few slices of fried potato thrown in, nice and tangy! The other is a mushroom, chicken and cream sauce, both are amazing!
