Foodie Friday: French Toast & Berry Pears

, , Leave a comment

I love breakfast foods, especially the ones that are usually reserved for the weekends. However, when Dale gave me the idea of making French toast this morning, I dismissed him. “French toast is for the weekend,” I said. But then I remembered how little time French toast takes to make. And I saw the pears sitting on our counter…

So, here I am, with a delicious breakfast to celebrate Friday!

French Toast & Berry Pears
(Single serving)
Toast ingredients:

  • Bread (I used 2 thick slices of leftover French bread)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
  • Dashes of your favorite spices; I used cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cardamom

Fruit topping ingredients:

  • 1 pear, sliced
  • 1.5 tsp butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 scoop of berry jam
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  1. Beat your eggs and mix in the milk, vanilla and spices. Start soaking your bread slices. Flip after a few minutes so the other side can soak the goodness up.
  2. Heat your butter in a small saucepan until melted. Add your brown sugar and still until it bubbles. Add the pear, jam and lemon juice. Cook until pears are soft, and remove from heat.
  3. Heat a bit of butter in a frying pan and cook the bread until golden brown.
  4. To serve, scoop the fruit over the bread. I added a dollop of Greek yogurt on top…along with a touch of maple syrup.
  5. Enjoy as you would on a weekend!
