french toast with blueberry sauce

besides not having to go into work, another great thing about the weekend is BREAKFAST! you actually have to make it and enjoy it.

mise en place
blueberry sauce
1.5 cups of blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup of water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon citrus rind (lemon, orange, grapefruit)

place all of the ingredients in a heavy sauce pan. bring to a boil and simmer for 10 mins. chill before serving

mise en place

french toast
2 eggs
1/4 cup of cream
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
4 slices of day old baguette cut 1 inch thick (i'm also using left over king's hawaiian bread)
2 tablespoons of butter
powdered sugar for dusting

whisk the first four ingredients in a shallow bowl. place the bread slices, into the bowl, allowing the slices to soak up the egg mixture for a few seconds, then turn to coat the other side.

heat a griddle to medium heat and place one tablespoon of butter for each slice of bread. cook each side until golden brown, about 2-3 mins each side.

dust with powdered sugar and serve with blueberry sauce (or maple syrup)

bon appétit~!


  1. that looks bomblicious!! i always hate french toast because its soggy and taste like unhappy bread... but this one feels like it would have that perfect texture of chewy and crisp
