Easy Savory French Toast

Savoring Italy

My Easy Savory French Toast is a delicious spin on the traditional French toast. We used fresh herbs and other savory ingredients to flavor our batter. A nicely cooked egg with a runny yolk is the finishing touch to this excellent breakfast, brunch or dinner dish.

White Scribbled Underline

– 8 slices of challah bread or a baguette (better if it’s 1-2 days old) – 1 cup milk I used unsweetened almond milk (use whatever milk you like) – 6 eggs – 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley chopped – 2 teaspoons fresh thyme chopped – ½ teaspoon garlic powder or onion powder (or a combination of both) – ½ teaspoon salt – ½ teaspoon black pepper – 3 Tablespoons of vegetable oil or whatever oil you prefer – Optional toppings: arugula sliced avocado, fried or soft-boiled eggs

Savory French toast variations: – Add crumbled bacon on top (oven baked bacon is so nice with it!) – Serve with cherry tomato confit – Top with easy marinated mushrooms – Top with some grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

How to know when the French toast is ready? Some people prefer a softer centered French toast and some may like it crispier. I prefer crispier. The best way to tell if it’s ready to your preference is to check the color and you could touch the center (carefully, it will be very hot!) to see if it’s cooked enough. How to keep French toast warm? If you’re not serving the French toast immediately, place it on a baking sheet in a warm oven covered lightly with foil paper
