Greetings, good friends!!! Thanks for stopping by. We just celebrated 6 yrs of marriage & I wanted to make something special for breakfast this weekend, so this is what I whipped up. This is the perfect use for day old bread or even bread that's been in your freezer. It soaked up all the flavors in just a few minutes & made for a super quick, fancy looking breakfast. We totally fell hard for this dish & I am sure your family will too. The only thing I might add next time, it just a little lemon zest, to compliment the blueberry preserves. Otherwise, it's absolutely perfect!!! Can't wait for you try this, enjoy.
4-5 slices day old french bread (used a french batard)
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons half and half
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon)
1/8 tsp almond extract
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup blueberry preserves
In a shallow pan, whisk together, eggs, half & half, pumpkin pie spice, extract, salt & pepper. Soak bread for a few minutes on each side or until it soaks up the majority of the mixture. In a cast iron skillet, over medium high heat melt butter. Place soaked bread in skillet & cook for 3-4 mins on each side or until it just begins to brown. Top with blueberry preserves or jam & serve.
Makes 2 servings
