Maryann’s famous French toast

Maryann’s famous French toast

Brunch is without a doubt is my favorite meal which is pretty crazy because I grew up hating all breakfast foods (eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc).  Once I became and adult and realized brunch meant adding mimosas to the deal, OH!! I was totally for that lol.  Next to mimosas, French toast is my favorite breakfast/brunch item and I’ve made a million different renditions of it (don’t worry I’ll be sharing them all with you).  I’m not a syrup kind of gal, to me syrup is so 90’s and compote is so 2018 and much better.  Especially my compotes (I have a million of these recipes too).  So, here’s my famous French toast recipe and one of my favorite compote recipes to go with it cause… I can’t have y’all out here living in the 90’s. Now this is certainly a recipe that will make your guests think they are dining at your favorite brunch spot in the city and that you’re some kind of chef (thank me later 😉 ).  If you want to get really fancy, which I recommend you can make your own brioche bread just click the link for my recipe.

Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you make this, I love to see you guys renditions of my recipes!

Instructions
  1. In a sauce pan add your strawberries, sugar, oj, water, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir ingredients together until well combined. Turn your heat to a medium/high heat and cook until strawberries and pineapples are soft, and your sauce is like a syrup. Whisk in your corn starch slowly to avoid clumps. You can skip the cornstarch if you prefer a thinner sauce. Pour compote into a food processor and pulse 3-4 times just to break down your fruit (you'll still want it chunky)
  2. Heat your griddle or skillet to a medium heat, prep your egg batter while your griddle warms. In a large bowl add your eggs, milk, almond and vanilla extracts, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and whisk together until fully mixed.
  3. Once your griddle is hot dip your brioche bread into the egg batter and place on griddle or in pan. Cook on each side until it's golden brown (about 3 minutes).
  4. Once your French toast has finished cooking top with strawberry-pineapple topping and whipped cream and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

If you use frozen fruit add an extra 1/4 cup of sugar.  The extra water will cause you to need more sugar.
