Last Friday of the Month Recipe from Author Terri Reed ~ Sourdough French Toast

 Yum, there isn't too much more to say, except add a few more yums in there. I love the combination of sourdough bread and egg.  
This recipe from author Terri Reed looks incredible.  Enjoy, I know I will.  

And don't forget, she has a book to share, Guardian, Classified K-9 Unit.  A Love Inspired Suspense!!

The recipe and why you love making it:

Saturday morning brunch has always been one of our family’s favorite meals together. We usually sleep in a little and gather in the kitchen where we laugh and talk about the week. Our favorite brunch menu includes French toast, bacon and fresh fruit. This recipe was perfected by my daughter. I’d never heard of vanilla bean paste, let alone used it until she decided to become a pastry chef. The paste adds such a richness to the batter that vanilla extract doesn’t. And the almond milk gives a touch of sweetness as well as flavor. Yum. I hope you’ll enjoy.

Sourdough French Toast

Sourdough bread: about 8 pieces, depending on the size of your bread
3 medium eggs
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
A stick of butter on hand
Topping as desired

Brown two tablespoons of butter in a pan on medium heat. Whisk together the eggs, almond milk, vanilla bean paste, and ground cinnamon. 

Drench the sourdough bread pieces in the egg batter and place in the browned butter simmering in the pan. Let sit until the underside is golden brown; flip the bread and cook the other side. Brown additional butter in the pan as needed.

When both sides are golden brown, place the French toast on a plate and top as desired. Consider an additional slab of butter melted on top, along side powdered sugar and warm maple syrup.

  1. Thank you for hosting me today. I hope you'll enjoy the recipe.

  2. My huge apologies to Terri, spell check did a number on me and unfortunately Terri. REED, not Reid. And oddly some came through correctly and others not. I'm so sorry, Terri. This is a great recipe and I love the book.

    Mea Culpa.
