Baklava French Toast

Did you say baklava french toast?! Yes, yes I did. Matt loves baklava and eats it any time he sees it — I don’t think it’s a controllable impulse at this point. I kept promising to make him breakfast, and finally, one morning, I got up before him and gave it a shot.

Baklava French Toast

I used this recipe, but I have a few recommendations if you’re going to try it.

First of all, it seemed a bit too clove-y too me, so I might tone down the amount of that particular spice.

Second, I ended up taking my ‘sandwiches’ apart, then individually cooked each side until they were nearly done, after which I put the filling back on, sandwiched it, and let it cook a bit longer. When I tried cooking it from a raw sandwich, the inside was eggy and dry.

Even with the huge amount of cloves it was still pretty good! And it looks (and sounds) really impressive.

What’s your favourite breakfast food? Are you a baklava fiend?

      Do it!! It’s super good.

  2. Yup. That looks very much like something I would put in my mouth. I didn’t even know this was a thing. I’m super duper impressed right now. Even if you are a newb and even if the first one was charred, you are an all star in my books for even attempting this magical dish. Good on ya!

      At least I made a good one for Matt. 😛

    Totally made this yesterday, DELISH! Thanks for the tip on the cloves. I had a slight problem with only having “fancy” honey and not your regular liquid honey so my spread wasn’t very spreadable, but it was still awesome 🙂

      Yeah, the cloves are a bit much I think. I feel like it’d be good with cinnamon in the nut mixture but that’s just a guess!

  4. There’s a right way to cook french toast? There are RECIPES for french toast?! I thought you soaked your bread in some eggs and cinnamon cooked it up! Yours looks so fancy and delicious. I might have to try ramping it up a notch.

    My son loves “french toast waffles”. I haven’t the heart to tell him there’s eggs in there….

      😉 I think the recipe is required because it’s a bit fancier than regular french toast — but if you’re a baklava-maker then you’d know what ingredients to add in!

  5. I just love Baklava. I will surely try it out. I had baklava earlier made by mom.. It is simply superb. 🙂
