I think I’ve mentioned that the Cherry Valley market near me sells this fantastic Italian bread, two loaves for a dollar fifty. A bargain I dont often pass up especially on Fridays when I often make pasta. What’s pasta without a loaf of garlic bread… But that’s a story for another day. Today I’m focusing on what to do with the left over loaf. And that’s where a lazy Saturday morning comes in handy when I make these mini french toast from the loaf left out to harden a little.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Four one inch slices of left over Italian loaf
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- A splash of amaretto
- Cinnamon sugar
Start by warming up your skillet. In a large shallow bowl beat the egg and milk together. Whisk in a slash of amaretto. Soak the slices of bread in the egg mixture and place them on the skillet. It only take a few minutes to brown each side. When they are done transfer them to the plate, lightly butter them and dust with cinnamon sugar.
Enjoy with your morning coffee and croissants.
