I woke up feeling generous, so I made the boys something a step beyond our usual Saturday pancakes. And since I’m still feeling generous, I thought I’d share with you as well.
It’s a heretofore well-guarded secret that I call PB & J French Toast. Basically, you make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Dredge it in a mixture of eggs, milk and a touch of baking powder. Then place it carefully in a pan of hot oil. It’s that simple. The only real point worth noting outside of that self explanatory “recipe” is the importance of frying your French toast in a healthy pool of oil. At least a half inch in the bottom of that pan. I’ve seen so many people just mist their pan with that Pam stuff or a little dollop of butter. No. You must hook up a bath of oil for this.
Then serve it with syrup and take a bow. Kids (and adults) will revere you. Sounds weird, but it’s good, I’m here to testify.
Serve with good coffee, a glass of milk or your choice of breakfast beers. Anytime I pull out the maple syrup, I like a Scotch ale or doppelbock. But stout was made for breakfast and an APA would do well to cut some of the sweetness.
