Savoury Miso French Toast
I’ll be honest, I’ve never really been a french toast person. My dad loves the sh*t and used to make it whenever my mom and I would allow (she’s not a huge french toast person either).
But I guess after seeing so many waffles, pancakes, etc. online, I started to get curious again.
On the weekends, I like to steer toward a more savoury and filling breakfast (picture each weekday filled with a smoothie, or buckwheat oats… they get old after a while). And while my go-to fried egg on toast with avocado is divine, it’s sometimes nice to get a little creative.
This savoury miso and leek french toast recipe is perfect for a Sunday brunch where you want to impress, with literally ZERO (k, maybe like 1/10) effort.
Ingredients (per piece of toast)
1 piece of sourdough bread: this is a great opportunity to use up the stale-er stuff you were thinking about throwing out
1 clove garlic: I prefer roasted, which I cook during meal prep!
1 egg: go free range when possible!
1 inch piece of leek, finely chopped
2 tbsp. canned coconut milk
1-2 tbsp. ghee
Mix egg, canned coconut milk, and egg
Chop garlic and leek, then add to the egg mixture
Put sourdough in the egg mixture and let sit for a few minutes
Melt ghee in the pan on medium heat
Place bread in the pan (make sure you get all the extra bits onto the bread!) and continue cooking on medium heat, covered. Let it get brown then flip.
Make it as golden to nearly burned as desired (I go nearly burned, shhhh yes I know that’s not that good for me, but we all have our vices, right?)
I love pairing this with a hearty kale salad, or just spread some avocado on top!
I also really enjoy the blended flavours of miso and maple, so you can always drizzle a little pure maple syrup to get that salty-sweet taste!
