I was at a local Farmer’s Market yesterday and I bought a loaf of citrus herb bread and the first thing I thought was, “This would make delicious french toast!!” But what do I put on it? The following recipe is what I came up with!
about 2 cups diced beets (freshly boiled)
The rind and juice of one large orange
1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp butter
pinch of kosher salt
1/2 tsp of fresh chopped rosemary
Chop and boil beets until a fork goes into them easily. Drain.
Whisk together orange juice, honey, rosemary, salt, and 1/2 of the orange rind.
Heat pan to medium and add butter, beets, and lemon honey mixture.
Cook until most of liquid has evaporated leaving beets glazed and a little sauce. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
Citrus Rosemary Goat Cheese:
1/2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 rind of an orange
1/4 cup goat cheese
Cream all ingredients together.
Savory French Toast:
splash of milk or cream
2-4 slices of rustic bread cut in half (I used a citrus herb bread I found at a local farmer’s market)
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Dip bread in and coat with egg mixture. Cook in a well buttered skillet for a few minutes on each side.
Assemble and enjoy!
