This is going to be a quickie because I need to pack my heavy winter coat, scarf and beanie: I’m heading to Minneapolis for a quick trip. I’m kind of excited because I’ve heard so many awesome things. But I’m also kind of scared of the weather. It does look like there’s going to be a warming trend, so fingers crossed that my fingers don’t freeze!
This cheesy french toast is just the kind of thing I love eating in cold weather. Cheesy, warm, eggy bread: what’s not to love? Essentially it’s French toast minus any sort of syrup, plus cheese. Because, cheese. The inside of the bread stays custardy, the cheese gets melty-crisp and with a dollop of sour cream it kind of sort of feels a little bit like eating a pierogi?
Happy Sunday – stay warm and brunch up!
Cheesy French Toast Recipe
makes 1 slice, scale as needed
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar
- salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 1 super thick slice of bread of choice (I used white)
- a touch of oil or butter for the pan
- sliced green onions, to serve
- sour cream, to serve
Whisk together the egg, milk, cheddar and a bit of salt and pepper.. Soak the bread on both sides while you heat up a non-stick pan over medium heat. Heat up your oil or butter and add the slice of bread to the pan and grill until golden brown. Be patient and cook on medium to medium low so the cheese crisps up and the eggy insides cook through, about 5 minutes per side. Ideally you want the cheese to frico/get extra crsipy, so patience is a virtue! When both sides are cooked to your liking, serve with sour cream and a generous amount of green onions. Enjoy!
It’s Sunday! You know what that means: it’s time for Sunday Brunch. Why don’t you skip the line and make brunch at home this week? The coffee’s truly bottomless, the booze doesn’t have a crazy markup and you can chill out in your pajamas. Every Sunday I’ll post a brunch recipe. Soon you won’t be asking, where should we go for brunch – instead it’ll be, what should we make for brunch today?
