My mother was not the greatest cook, but when she made French Toast it was always perfect!
Only years later I have learned that “Eier brood” as my mom would call it is indeed French toast and traditionally not served with Butter and Aromat seasoning but with Cinnamon or Maple syrup.
Could you imagine my husbands surprise when I made Savory French Toast the first time as a young married couple while he grew up with French Toast sprinkled with Cinnamon sugar.
The look on his face said it all, well needless to say I still look at him like he is the crazy one and he is still eating my savory French Toast!
Don’t use fresh bread.
Use a hot pan! This will give your bread that lovely golden color.
This is my version.
I’ve used sliced whole-wheat bread.
Assemble a sandwich with ham in the middle and cheese on both sides.
Pop into the microwave oven for +- 20 seconds or just enough time to let the cheese
melt in order to keep the sandwich together while frying.
Press the sandwich flat with your hands while still warm and set aside while you
beat the eggs. Season with chopped chives, salt and pepper.
Dip the sandwich in the egg batter on both sides and fry in a hot pan with butter or olive oil.
