I got this savory french toast recipe from food52.com, I haven't tried it yet but it looks amazing and plan to make it for a rare "breakfast for dinner" night tomorrow night. * Better to use a country or pullman loaf for this. You want it to stand up to the egg batter and not get mushy, use or look for a day-old loaf if possible

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a bowl or baking dish, beat together eggs with half-and-half, salt, pepper, green onions, and cilantro.
  2. Heat a medium or large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Cover the bottom of the skillet with vegetable oil and add a tablespoon or two of butter for taste.
  4. Dip the bread triangles into the egg batter, drain off any excess, and place straight into the hot pan.
  5. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side – you want to develop a golden-brown color and the texture should be crispier than traditional French toast.
  6. Place cooked toasts on a paper towel-lined plate or rack to drain.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together ketchup and hot sauce to your desired heat tolerance.
  8. Serve toasts warm with a side of the spicy ketchup.
