Nope, that title isn’t a mistake…this french toast is made from day old french bread.

 

MamaJo’s French French Toast

Ingredients:

  • Day old french bread (half a loaf or more)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c milk (I didn’t measure so this is approximate)
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • butter

Instructions:

  • Heat griddle or pan to medium.
  • Wisk eggs, milk, spices and vanilla together in a large bowl or baking dish.
  • Butter griddle or pan.
  • Quickly dip bread in egg mix so that both sides are covered and place on griddle or pan. (only dip what will fit in the pan)
  • Flip when bottom of bread is a nice golden brown. Remove when both sides are golden and set aside (preferably in a slightly warm oven).
  • Repeat until you have used all the bread.

You can freeze whatever excess you have made and revive the French French Toast in the toaster or toaster oven (do people even have these anymore?) for a fast, easy, mess free breakfast.

MamaJo’s Tart Berry Compote

Ingredients:

  • 1 T unsalted butter
  • 2 T cream cheese brought to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 handfuls blueberries, frozen or fresh
  • 2 handfuls raspberries, frozen or fresh
  • a splash of no sugar added apple juice

Instructions:

  • Melt butter and cream cheese over low heat in a small sauce pan.
  • Wisk with a fork until creamy and add sugar. Stir constantly until melted.
  • Add berries and stir. Raspberries don’t hold together well under heat and will reduce beautifully. Stir constantly until raspberries reduce.
  • Add apple juice until your desired thickness is reached.
  • Spread compote over hot french toast.
