Silver Palate-style French Toast

From Recidemia
Jump to: navigation, search


The wonderful cookbook The Silver Palate has an over-the-top French toast recipe. By using croissants instead of regular bread, and cream instead of milk, it is enough to harden anyone's arteries. This is a slightly healthier version of French toast, still using the Triple Sec and orange zest that gives the Silver Palate recipe its punch. From "Catsrecipes Y-Group"[1]


Ricotta cheese and poached fruit go well with french toast.


  1. Beat eggs and milk together.
  2. Add the triple sec, orange zest, and cinnamon.
  3. Whisk until well blended.
  4. Pour into a shallow bowl.
  5. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing bread to soak up some of the mixture.
  6. Melt some butter (or use vegetable oil) over a skillet on medium high heat.
  7. Add as many slices of bread onto the skillet as will fit at a time.
  8. Fry until brown on both sides, flipping the bread when necessary.
  9. Serve hot with butter, maple syrup, and fresh berries.
