Oh La La… Buttermilk French Toast…

Leave a comment

Who doesn’t love french toast? No friend of mine, that’s for sure. You know we love breakfast for any meal. Did you know the plural of breakfast is breakfi? Seriously. My husband told me that when we were first dating… ah, love.

This weekend we decided to try something a little different… using buttermilk. I know, I know… could we be any more reckless and wild? That’s just how we roll, what can I say.

Don’t they look lovely and golden brown and delicious? We ate every bite. Plus a few more pieces not shown… didn’t want to look like a bunch of gluttons.

Let’s gather our ingredients! Almost everything is a pantry-staple, here, except buttermilk and possibly the bread. Unless those things are already in your pantry, in which case I’m impressed with the diversity of your groceries.

(Full recipe, bottom of post)

Ingredients:

  • 5 eggs
  • Half a loaf of bread, of a type you enjoy french-style
  • 8 oz of low-fat buttermilk
  • spray oil
  • 2 tsp white sugar
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg

Note: I wanted to use Challah bread which I love for french toast, however my local Kroger just wasn’t on my side that day, so the best thing I could find in my price range was this sliced french bread for $1.99 a loaf. We used the other half of the loaf for toast – yum. Sourdough is incredible as french toast too, but I was afraid combined with the buttermilk the tangy taste might be a bit too much.

Also, the 16 oz bottle of buttermilk was only 99 cents! I only used half, so it was pretty much a bargain.

Gently beat the eggs in a medium bowl with the buttermilk, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Heat your griddle, and spray with oil. Temperature depends on your griddle or skillet – for the griddle, I set it at 350 degrees.

See how nice and smooth the egg mixture is, above?

Soak each piece of bread in the egg mixture until it is soft but not yet falling apart.

Cook each side of the french toast until golden brown and firm, but not too dry.

Personally, we serve ours with 100% Maple Syrup (as mentioned before, I am a shameless syrup snob) and fresh fruit. The buttermilk definitely gave it a different flavor and it was delicious! The new tangier flavor played so well off the sweetness of syrup.

By the thoughtful look on Lo’s face, I’d say he was testing his palette to identify the subtle flavors.

Or, he is just a crazy kid.

So, there you have it – the easiest recipe ever. Delicious, kid-friendly, and probably under $3 to make a whole big mess of a meal.

Anyone else shaking things up with a new 99 cent ingredient? Letting your grocery store sales dictate your meal planning? Trying to get a picture of a squirmy three-year old acting like a french-toast-monster?
