Pretzel French Toast
The other day, I asked me neighbor if she was up for going out to breakfast. Sadly, she had already eaten. There is a light at the end of this tunnel, though. She had extra ingredients and offered to treat me to a delicious meal. How could I say no, when I heard she was making french toast out of pretzel buns? That sounds so unique and delightful. Here’s what she did.
PRETZEL FRENCH TOAST A LA LORELEI
1 tsp Sugar
1 T Buttermilk
1 pinch Cinnamon
1 pinch Nutmeg
1 Pretzel bun cut into 3 pieces
1/2 T Bourbon vanilla
1 tsp Almond extract
- Place eggs, sugar, buttermilk, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and almond extract into a large container
- Whisk to combine
- Place slices of bread in the container and toss to coat
- Allow them to sit for up to 10 minutes, flipping every 2 minutes
- Heat pan to medium and spray with cooking spray (or melt butter)
- Place the soaked bread in the pan and cook for about 4 minutes per side, until golden brown
- Top with powdered sugar and maple syrup
Place the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, extract and cinnamon into a large bowl. She used a baking dish. Whisk to combine and scramble the eggs. Place your pieces of bread in the dish and toss them around to cover them in the mixture.
Allow them to soak for up to 10 minutes, turning every 2 minutes to ensure the whole piece of bread gets coated in the batter.
Heat your pan to medium and spray with pam (or melt some butter, depending on what you’d prefer). Place your pieces of bread, one side down, in the pan and allow them to cook for about 4 minutes.
Flip the pieces of bread and cook on the other side.
After they finish cooking, plate them and top with powdered sugar and maple syrup. Serve a few berries on the side, if you really like your neighbor.
This was quite a delightful breakfast! the pretzel bread soaks up the batter quite nicely and holds it’s texture. There is also a little bit of sweetness in the bread which goes very well with the bourbon-cinnamon flavor. Delightful!
