Ice Cream French Toast


Ice Cream French Toast //

For the past week I’ve been wracking my brain trying to come up with a Christmas morning breakfast for all of youse and I’ve had trouble. Because if I’m being honest, super honest, this is probably as good as I get on Christmas morning. This is the recipe I use every year, year after year, and I don’t see me changing it up anytime soon. (Except for the new recipe that will be appear in my book next year but whatever, you get my point!)

This isn’t the only thing that belongs on the breakfast table. I think that there needs to be something savory like sausage or an egg dish or something because sweet foods get a little too much real quick.

French toast has never tasted so good. First, a creme anglaise is made. And then the brioche (or whatever bread you choose) is soaked it in for a few minutes and then boom…in the pan with some butter. It’s decadent and warm and taste just like Christmas should.

I’m not sure I’ll be back in this space before Christmas because I’m thinking I need a bit of a break. I’m headed to Palm Springs with Josh and Amelia for a bit of relaxation. But I’ll definitely be back before the end of the year with a recap and maybe a new recipe, who knows.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas.



(P.S. For the recipe, hop over to this post from last year on PBS’s blog.)

    Merry Christmas. Hope Amelia is on Santa’s nice list this year.

    French toast is one of the only few things hubby and I argue about. He insists it should be savoury. I insist it should be sweet. Maybe I’ll give this a crack Christmas Day to see if I can convert him.

    for some reason, my blogger feed is now filled with at least 2 years of your blog posts
    — i actually don’t know how far back they go because i grew tired of scrolling.

    which is unfortunate because i would have liked to see posts from
    the other blogs i am following.

      I’m not sure what reader you’re using but I have a feeling it’s the reader’s fault. I use Feedly and my feed (as well as others) is performing just fine. What reader are you using?
