Raspberry Rhubarb French Toast ~ Yum!


This morning I made raspberry rhubarb french toast, it was absolutely delicious!  I don't normally make breakfast like this on Monday's, but it's a holiday and I'm on winter vacation! It all began yesterday when my husband and I went to the in-door Farmer's Market in So. Portland, Maine.  We stopped by a new vendor that we hadn't seen before to check out his baked goods - our first mistake, LOL!!!  I spotted the bread and exclaimed that I'd never thought to make rhubarb bread (I have some in the freezer)!  It was the baker who told us that it was "to die for" as French toast!


I simply soaked the bread in egg & milk


put the bread in my hot cast iron skillet & poured the left over egg in the pan


Then poured our pure Maine Maple Syrup that we picked up at the Farmer's Market over our French toast with a little dollop of butter!

Now the possibilities are endless, banana bread French toast, blueberry bread  French  toast, cranberry bread  French  toast . . . you get where I'm going with this . . . 

Served with a cup of tea, it was like having dessert for breakfast!  Yum!

  15. Haha, I did pop over to Karen's again to check which fridge is yours and now I'm here and my mouth is actually watering. It's been ages since I made French toast. I'm thinking it's been long overdue.

    Couldn't live with the bottles tumbling over like in your fridge. Told you I'm anal ;-)

    Thanks for your visit and nice comment :-)
