As kids we left Santa cookies but maybe all he wanted was some crispy bacon and a terrific twist on french toast....at least that is what I'm hoping because maybe this will be the secret key to getting my list answered : ) While I feel french toast in all it's forms should definitely not be left to a certain time of year (or day really) the Portugese and Brazilians will typically be feasting on it around Yule time while the Brazilians enjoy it on Easter.
No matter when you like your french toast it's best made with day old french bread so it can soak up all the eggy-goodness.
Chocolate French Toast
For every 3 pieces of toast you will need:
1 Egg, Slightly Beaten
2 Tsp Dutch Processed Cocoa
1 1/2 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Milk
1 Tsp Vanilla
Caramel Sauce, for topping, my favorite is Martha's
1. Mix all ingredients together. Let bread soak in mixture on both sides.
2. Heat a griddle with a small amount of butter on it, once heated toast bread on both sides until egg mixture is no longer runny and a crispy crust has formed.
3. Before serving drizzle with caramel sauce.
