It seems that every time I buy a baguette I can never seem to finish it before it becomes stale–fresh bread really only has a 1 or 2 day window–so most of the time I end up with no choice but having to throw out the rest of the baguette! Not able to find a baker nearby who makes a half-sized baguette, I came up with an idea the other morning to use up the rest of my still-fresh bread… Mini french toast!
What you’ll need:
Splash of milk
Berries for garnish (optional, but highly recommended!)
Slice up your bread into 1-2 centimeter slices. Whisk together 1-2 eggs, splash of milk, and teaspoon or so of cinnamon. Soak each piece of bread in the egg/milk/cinnamon mixture. Heat a cast iron griddle pan (we have this one) on medium-high heat, lightly grease, and cook each side of the bread until golden brown. Serve immediately with maple syrup and berries!
Enjoy! PS – Doesn’t that strawberry look amazing? One of the many perks of living in California is the most amazing fruit ever!
