One thing that my hubby can always count on for Father’s Day is a home cooked breakfast. His request this year was a recipe that I invented when we were first married and have been making for him for years: Sourdough Cream Cheese French Toast. The best thing about this recipe, besides the fact that it is delicious, is that it is super easy!
You will need:
Sourdough Bread (I buy Seattle Sourdough Round by Franz Bread)
Syrup (I used huckleberry syrup this morning)
Directions: First, you will want to make French Toast like you normally would (For my egg mixture, I mix 5 eggs (I remove yolks from 3 of them, but that is up to you), a splash of milk and a teaspoon of vanilla). I used the entire bag of bread, so I actually doubled the egg mixture. We really love this recipe with the HUGE sliced Seattle Sourdough Cracked Wheat Sourdough bread (made by Franz Bread), but any bread will work.
Dip your bread, front and back in egg mixture and then place on Pam sprayed skillet.
Brown on both sides, and just before it is almost done, I spread on a layer of cream cheese and then add strawberries and bananas (this helps the cream cheese to seep into the bread, so yummy!) Top with other berries, if you like … add syrup and powdered sugar and enjoy!
