I think I must be in the minority of folks this week – I know a lot of people were looking forward to this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (sugar-crusted French toast, p 418) but I’m just not a French toast kinda gal. I like the idea of French toast (and I don’t mind making it) but for breakfast, even brunch, I am on Team Savoury. I’m the kind of person who will want just a *bite* of someone else’s sweet dish (pancakes, French toast) so I rarely make it at home. Let alone when I am home by myself… The weekend I made this, Neil was out of town and I really debated skipping this one. But hey, in over 3 years I have not missed one week of FFWD so I sacrificed a slice of this gorgeous sourdough to make ONE lone slice of sugar-crusted French toast!
I know sourdough isn’t the proper type of bread to make French toast with but it’s what I had on hand. I served this straight up, with just a sprinkle of icing sugar. I didn’t feel it needed syrup, it was sweet enough. I liked the slight crunch from the sugar sprinkled on the toast before it’s fried. It was definitely nice enough but still wouldn’t be my choice over something savoury…
