For breakfast today, I decided to use yesterday's Irish Soda Bread to make French Toast. Andy is a Leap Year baby, so we're celebrating his birthday this weekend (though he has no actual birthday this year). French toast is one of his favorite breakfast foods, but I don't ever make it because I'm not a fan of mushy, spongy bread or eggy texture. For this recipe, I used only one egg and some milk to dip the bread in and then did so very quickly, which helped the bread retain its texture. Because the soda bread is only slightly sweet, the warm maple syrup was a good complement. Enjoy!
Irish Soda Bread French Toast
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices Irish Soda Bread
Warm maple syrup
1. Combine egg and next 2 ingredients in a shallow dish. Dip both sides of bread slices quickly in egg mixture, allowing mixture to drain off bread. Cook bread on a hot grill pan or in a skillet on both sides until toasted. Serve with warm maple syrup.
