pin it Cakewalk: French Toast Day

It’s no surprise there’s a day of the year dedicated to French Toast, when you think about it – it is just about the most delicious way to start a day ever. On a cold fall day like November 28 (especially in the North East), National French Toast Day, is just what the doctor ordered.

We’re going to celebrate National French Toast Day by sharing our fave variation on the classic with you, fellow gourmands: where French toast and the world’s best PB&J sandwich meet. We hope it’ll give you inspiration for this weekend, when we suggest you dress in your comfiest outfit ever – navy cotton cargos, white tank top, open check flannel shirt,  scarf in contrasting tartan, wooly socks and boots in camel – and cook a mountain of French toast for all your friends. Might as well make it a sleepover, because after tasting this amazing cooking, they’ll never want to leave.

PB&J Stuffed French Toast

To feed 8, you’ll need:

8 eggs

½ cup whole milk

4 tsp granulated sugar

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Pinch of nutmeg

1 cup natural peanut butter

1 cup strawberry jam

16 slices white bread

4 tbsp butter

Maple syrup to serve

 

Instructions:

Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Spread peanut butter on 8 slices of bread, and jam on the other 8 slices. Match up into sandwiches.

In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp butter over medium heat. Dip both sides of the sandwiches in the egg mixture and add to the skillet. Work in batches, adding more butter between. Cook until the undersides are golden, about 2 minutes, then flip and cook 2 more minutes.

For fanciness, you can dust some icing sugar and add a few slices of fresh strawberry before serving. But no one will care either way. Serve with a jar of maple syrup on the table – and bask in the compliments to the chef.
