French Toast and Avocado Butter

>> Monday, January 30, 2012

If this recipe looks familiar, it's because it IS familiar. Last year, we made up some tasty Basil Pesto French Toast. We haven't made it since, but when we found ourselves with almost all the ingredients . . .

. . . it was a no-brainer.

So, there's no need for actual pesto if you have basil and garlic. I imagine you could add Parmesan cheese for some extra flair. No need for fancy herbed bread either. Plain wheat does the job just fine.

I know it's only Monday. File this recipe under "weekend - must-try."


What you'll need . . .
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup almond milk or milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Handful basil leaves, minced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 slices of wheat bread

Method . . .
  1. Whisk together the milk, eggs, and pepper. Add in the minced garlic and basil.
  2. Pour mixture into shallow dish.
  3. Heat a pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly oil.
  4. Dip a piece of bread into the egg mixture. Then turn over to coat both sides.
  5. Place bread on the pan and cook until both sides are browned.
  6. Continue process with all pieces of bread.
Dreamy . . .

But I made it even better!


What you'll need . . .
  • 4 tablespoons avocado
  • 4 teaspoons Earth Balance or butter

Method . . .
  1. Mash together the avocado and butter until smooth.
  2. Makes four servings.
I haven't thought of it much until recently, but brunch is my favorite meal. I may have written that before, now that I think of it. Seriously, though. I love the combination of sweet and savory. I love eggs and egg-bakes. Pancakes, crispy hash-browns, waffles, and mimosas.

Most of all, I love French toast, particularly this recipe.

And even though the toast wasn't exactly begging for it, I drowned it in maple syrup. Avocado goes with pretty much everything, right?
