Lover woke up sick this morning and wanted something gentle for dinner tonight. He'd been eating a lot of soup lately so we decided to mix it up and have breakfast! So I ran out to the grocery store to pick up some bread and eggs. We went a little over budget for my birthday vaca this month so got some cheap italian bread. But when I got home, I discovered that there was a fancy loaf of sourdough bread in with my groceries. I was shocked. I had never seen it before! I realized the grocer must have mistakenly put it in my cart.
I hesitantly opened it up and took a bite, and it was so incredible that I ended up using it for our french toast! I felt slightly guilty at first but Gradon assured me that they wouldn't put it back on the shelf if I took it back because it had been paid for, although not by me.
Truth be told, this french toast would be awesome with any old bread, but this lovely sourdough loaf took it over the top. In the past, I've made it with Texas Toast which is also wonderful.
You will come back to this gem time and time again! This french toast puffs up like a dream and tastes almost candied. You have to taste it to believe it!
