I’m saying this is a great brunch recipe, but in reality, I don’t make, or eat, brunch. Something about the rare occasion of having a lazy morning doesn’t motivate me to want to get up and cook a fancy breakfast. But, I absolutely love all sorts of brunch food. I just make it for supper instead. So, If brunch isn’t your thing either, enjoy it as supper (because I know you can’t resist all those berries on top and that creamy coconut cheesecake in the middle.)
What are your favorite things to do on the Fourth of July besides eat all the fun, red, white and blue foods and all the delicious things that come off the grill? My family is coming to visit me this year and we’re going to try and make it to the Gettysburg to see the reenactments. Living near Philadelphia with all its American history, it seems a bit of a crime not to do something at least a little patriotic.
Even though this french toast looks fancy, all the components are simple and it can be on the table in about half an hour. Start by making the berry sauce and then whip up the cheesecake filling. After that, it’s super quick to fill the slices of bread with the filling, dip them in an egg mixture and cook them until golden. I used the three quart Covered Sauté Pan from the new Circulon® Innovatum Collection which can be found at Target. The skillet has special raised nonstick circles on the bottom that create awesome nonstick coating. I had to use the least amount of oil I ever had to make french toast. And it’s even dishwasher safe! Yay!!
