French Toast for Dinner ?

What about French Toast for dinner?  Tonight I made a savory french toast for my husband and myself and boy was it not only good but it took only minutes.

I had just bought Monk’s bread ( has a crust on the outside but soft on the inside) yesterday at Wegman’s but you could use any bread that you slice yourself. Challah would work also. You can also use Italian bread, just soak in egg mixture a little longer. Monk’s bread is round so I cut two thick slices and cut each one of those in half.  I whisked two large or xtra large eggs in a pie plate, added about  1/4 cup of milk and whisked that until they were incorporated. To that I added 1 1/2  tsp. dried basil, 1 1/2 tsp. dried oragano, a pinch of salt. You can use any combination of dried herbs you like. Whisk those in. Then take your sliced bread and one at a time put them in the egg mixture, leave for about 15 to 20 seconds, turn it over and let it soak for another 15 to 20 seconds. Meanwhile have a hot skillet with Canola oil at the ready. Put your slices in the hot skillet, turn the heat down to medium,  and cook until golden brown.Then flip them over and cook on the other side until golden. I had some shredded Mexican cheese, the kind you get in the dairy section of your grocery store, and put some of that on the bread, turned the heat off and put a lid on the pan or cover with foil. Let stand for a couple of minutes until the cheese melts.

There you have it. Serve with tomatoes cut in chunks or halved cherry tomatoes tossed in a little olive oil and lemon juice. I had an avacado so I cut that into cubes and tossed with the tomatoes also.

It was quick and easy and tasted great.                                                                                   CB064864
