Farmer’s Market French Toast July 14, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — lonislens @ 12:00 am

There is a fabulous little farmer’s market no more than 5 minutes from our house, and they have had the most delicious “free stone” peaches lately.  For those of you who don’t know (because I know I didn’t before one of the vendors explained it to me), free stone peaches are a type where you can easily separate the flesh from the pit.

I had some peaches that needed to be used up, and I also had a nice loaf of cranberry walnut challah bread (also from the farmer’s market), so I decided to whip up a quick brunch for the husband and myself.  Quick and easy are even more important now, as we welcomed the newest addition to the family a couple of weeks ago…a sweet baby girl!

French Toast Recipe:

  • 6 thick slices bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1.  Beat together egg, milk, salt, desired spices and vanilla.

2.  Heat a lightly oiled griddle of skillet over medium-high flame.

3.  Dunk each slice of bread in egg mixture, soaking both sides.

4.  Place in pan, and cook on both sides until golden.  Serve hot.


Peach Topping Recipe: my own simple creation

  • 2 medium sized peaches, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinammon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (I’m guesstimating this a bit, as I didn’t measure it exactly)

1.  Place all of the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat.

2.  Stir to incorporate, and reduce heat to low once it starts bubbling and the sugar has liquified.

I started the peach topping first, and turned it down so it just remained warm while the french toast was cooking.  This was a delicious brunch recipe, and a great way to utilize my farmer’s market finds!
