Crunchy French Toast

You probably know I am not a master chef. But once in a while I come across a tasty recipe that I can actually nail the first time around. And I figure if I can do it – pretty much anyone can do it!

I made this delicious crispy french toast this morning. YUM! Turned out like waaaaay more of a dessert than an actual meal – but that’s okay. It’s french toast, not a salad.

French Toast


Milk or half and half


Chamomile or Earl Grey tea


4 thick slices of bread

— Yup. That’s it. No eggs or nothing!

Oh… you will also need an oven.

First of all heat a cup of milk in a saucepan. The heavier/thicker the milk, the better. Once the milk is almost simmering, throw in the teabag and a bit of sugar to sweeten. Steep covered for 10 minutes.

Butter one side of each piece of bread. Use so much butter it’s gross. Like 2 tbsp per piece.

Toast or bake or broil or whatever the bread in the oven until the edges start to brown. Start butter side up and then flip to brown the edges on the other side.

Remove from oven and cover the buttered side with sugar (I used 3 kinds of sugars to make it extra delicious). Return to the oven to broil for a couple minutes until it’s crispy.

Serve in a puddle of the warm tea milk.

The bread will soak up all the milk – so serve immediately! I piled the toast one on top of the other so the bottom one got all wet and the top one stayed crispy – then I ate it together like an amazing layered cake from heaven.

TAAAA DAAAAAAAAA! Delicious dessert breakfast!

Three things I love about this French Toast (besides the deliciousness):

1- it’s even easier than regular french toast. No egg to beat or dipping or salmonella.

2- there are only like 3 dishes to wash after. Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

3- you could make this vegan really easily.

    This is called milk toast, and the HK Cafes all carry it! It’s awesome with condensed milk! Or even coconut milk!

    Add bubble tea and you have a full meal right there! (Yes, this was totally worth writing with exclamation points)

    Well this sounds fascinating! Aubrey makes some pretty awesome vegan french toast, but this milky tea idea is an interesting one!
