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.
Here’s where I tell you that prior to this I had never, ever made french toast — so if you’re a newbie like me you might want to practice basic french toast first. I charred my first slice right off the hop.
I used this recipe, but I have a few recommendations if you’re going to try it (although like I mentioned, I am new to this whole french toast thing so you might be a lot more capable of cooking it than I am, in which case, disregard). 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 all eggy and dry (again — total newb so this could be a problem an experienced french toast cook could avoid).
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?
