What is French Toast, Alex?
Yup. The title is in the form of a question. The answer is: “The end pieces of a loaf of bread can be successfully used this way.”
I’m not sure I’ve ever really used the end of commercial loaves before. Growing up my mom would always sacrifice and eat them for us which led me to deem them mutants and therefore inedible. But that all changed this weekend.
How could a coating of egg, milk, vanilla extract, honey, salt and cinnamon NOT transform something into deliciousness? I let a few slices—and the mutant slice—sit in that mixture for a few minutes before they were fried in butter. To ensure the mutantness could be hidden even more, I covered the slice in cinnamon-sauteed banana slices and real maple syrup.
Here’s to nose-to-tail eating. Sort of.
